Louisiana State University baseball player Tommy White will donate a portion of his NIL earnings to Empower 225, a non-profit organization in Baton Rouge that provides children with resources and skills to gain successes for bright futures. He’s making the contributions through his own charitable initiative, called Tiny Tanks.
In a released statement about the collaboration, White says, “I am excited to give back to the children of the Baton Rouge community through my Tiny Tanks charitable initiative. Please join me in supporting this great foundation, Empower 225, as we help uplift children in need.”
Empower 225 focuses their efforts on helping youth in the capital region who are at-risk of homelessness and dependency to reach their highest potential through educational support, life-skills training, career preparedness, housing, and mentorship.
White’s home town is St. Pete Beach, Florida. He was named the 2022 NCBWA National Freshman Hitter of the year, and First Team All-American. His 27 home runs at NC State broke the NCAA freshman record which stood for 32 years. Following his freshman year as a member of the Pack, he transferred to LSU for his sophomore year.
White is also eager to work with other local charitable organizations including Dreams Come True of Louisiana, and Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital to further improve children’s lives within the community. His hope is to serve as an example for other college athletes on how to utilize the recent NIL legislation to give back to their communities.
