Arizona State is the latest university to enter the NIL space.
The school launched the Sun Angel Collective in a press release on Tuesday. Arizona State was one of the last Power 5 schools to launch a booster-led collective, but directors of the collective said it was well-worth the wait.
“We couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity to support our student-athletes while at the same time helping out local nonprofits,” Sun Angel Collective president Jeff Burg said. “The collective offers fans, donors and brands the opportunity to engage with our student-athletes in new ways, whether they want to contribute $10 or $10,000,000.”
According to the collective, over $1 million has been committed from individual boosters and organizations. The name Sun Angel is in honor of the Sun Devil Club, previously known as the Sun Angel Foundation from 1947 to 2007.
Arizona State fans can also get involved and support the student-athletes through the collective.
“Membership in the Sun Angel Collective includes access to exclusive benefits, including member events, opportunities to participate in meet and greets with student-athletes and official Sun Angel Collective merchandise,” the group said in a news release. “Brands looking to partner with student-athletes and donors who wish to make larger one-time donations or multi-year gifts should reach out to the collective directly.”
