What is an NIL collective?

A collective is an organization formed to benefit student athletes, usually at a specific institution. The models vary somewhat, but the basic premise of most is that an alum, or group of alums, band together to form a company whose goal is to provide NIL opportunities to student athletes of that institution. How they find or provide those opportunities is where the models really differ.

Are NIL collectives non-profits?

Yes, some collectives are 501(c)(3) non-profits, which means donations to those collectives are tax-deductible. There are also a couple of collectives who have applied to be 501(c)(7) tax-exempt entities.

How many collectives are non-profits? Currently, we know of 14 that have received their 501(c)3) approval from the IRS, and 2 that have applied for 501(c)(7) designation. We’ll update this number as more information becomes available.

How do you start an NIL collective?

I’ve consulted with more than a dozen collectives in the formation phase, and I host monthly calls for collectives to discuss issues and share best practices.

To inquire about a consulting session or be added to our monthly call list, contact me.

I also have a membership community for collectives with ongoing education, expert Q&As and more. Learn more about NIL Collective Insider here.

Below is a list of NIL collectives. We will be updating this page as new collectives, or new details on existing collectives, emerge.

We’ve also started separate lists below of marketing or talent agencies that appear to be specializing in one university, NFT communities, local exchanges and schools partnering with Student Athlete Empowerment.

Mississippi State UniversityThe Legacy GroupLee VanHornTLG is a student athlete licensing company that assists student athletes in maximizing their earning potential through NIL. TLG pays each student athlete an initial license fee to secure rights to their NIL. TLG then solicits marketing opportunities for the student athletes, sells merchandise with the student athletes NIL, and arranges camps and autograph sessions. There is an upfront guarantee, and then TLG will work on NIL activities for that student athlete. Once a student athlete earns their initial fee back for the company, TLG enters a revenue sharing model with the student athlete that allows them to earn additional compensation in addition to the initial license fee.
Ohio State UniversityNIL ManagementBrandon Fuss-Cheatham, Zach BeebeNIL Management brokers deals for athletes, as well as helps them create their own brands and businesses.
