14 IU Athletes to Raise Awareness for 8 Indiana Charity Partners
Fourteen Indiana University student-athletes will use their Name, Image, and Likeness influence to help eight Indiana charity partners: Riley Children’s Foundation, Indiana Wish, Indiana Region of the American Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County, Turnstone, Stop the Violence Indianapolis, Boys & Girls Clubs of Bloomington and RecycleForce.
This group of athletes constitutes the “inaugural class” of students that is collaborating with Hoosiers For Good. The organization has a mission to raise awareness for charitable causes throughout Indiana by partnering local charities with community-minded IU student athletes who want to amplify philanthropic work.
Under their agreements with Hoosiers For Good, each student athlete will provide a variety of NIL services to their paired charities including social media posts, and a number of in-person appearances that may involve speaking, presenting skills, and autograph sessions.
The Hoosiers For Good Spring 2022 class includes:
|Riley Children’s Foundation||Brittany Ford||Softball|
|Indiana Wish||Mackenzie Holmes, Grace Berger||Basketball|
|Indiana Region of the|
American Red Cross

|Boys & Girls Clubs of|

|RecycleForce||AJ Barner, Shaun Shivers||Football|
Information about compensation for the athletes is shared in a news release from Hoosiers For Good: “The aggregate NIL compensation for the first Hoosiers For Good class totals $470,000, funded by the generous donations of supporters. Consistent with the vision of Hoosiers For Good, agreements are not ‘one size fits all.’ Rather, the value of the agreements varies based on the reach and platform each student athlete has to positively impact their charity.”
Hoosiers For Good plans to announce a second class of participating athletes later this year.
