The two official NIL collectives of IU Athletics, Hoosiers For Good and Hoosiers Connect, jointly announced today that they easily exceeded the previously announced goal of raising $1 million in donations, sponsorships, and memberships between Nov. 14-Dec. 31, 2022.
IU Athletics announced the news in a release.
By reaching that goal, the two NIL Collectives have secured an additional $1 million matching contribution from an anonymous donor.
The $2 million-plus generated from this fundraising push for the two Indiana NIL collectives will be utilized to pair charities and businesses with IU student-athletes through Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) agreements.
“From our conversations with the leadership teams at Hoosiers For Good and Hoosiers Connect, it was clear from the moment of the announcement of the $1 million match pledge that Hoosier supporters were going to step forward and maximize this tremendous opportunity,” said IU AD Scott Dolson in a release.
“This news is monumental for some critically important charities that are focused on improving the lives of Hoosiers all around our state. It’s also a difference-maker for our civic-minded student-athletes who will be able to maximize their NIL opportunities.
“I appreciate the outpouring of support from Hoosier Nation to maximize this $1 million matching pledge, and I also sincerely thank the anonymous donor for stepping forward with this generous matching offer.”
