Santa Clara Jesuit tradition is about educating the whole person-mind, body, and soul-and preparing student-athletes to create a more just, humane, and sustainable world. Santa Clara student-athletes are learning critical life lessons and values, including sportsmanship, discipline, teamwork, overcoming adversity, preparation, trust in others, and selflessness, to name just a few. Competing for Santa Clara will nourish their character and build their confidence, as they learn to maximize their potential. The Mission NIL was formed to help empower those student-athletes to maximize all the endeavors they undertake while in Santa Clara, both on-and-off the field. The alumni and fans that support Santa Clara student-athletes believe that each is destined to do amazing things and are committed to working tirelessly to ensure that every current and future Bronco has the opportunity to leverage the power of their name, image and likeness to build a brighter future for themselves and their communities.
Fans of Santa Clara now have the opportunity to support student-athletes directly by joining The Mission NIL. Each membership level offers exclusive benefits, and contributions can be designated by specific sport, with funds being allocated equally among all participating team members.
Between 85 – 90%. The Mission NIL keeps its overhead costs as low as possible, but must cover expenses related to IT, legal, marketing materials, content creation, student-athlete education, fan engagement experiences, and bookkeeping.
Yes, The Mission NIL members can denote what sport and their respective student-athletes contributions will be earmarked for. Members can also contact us directly to set up activations with their favorite student-athlete(s).
Individuals and businesses interested in giving larger contributions can do so via the “one-time contribution link” on the membership page, or can contact us directly at email@example.com to discuss further. Contributions can be specified for specific sports, programs and activations.
No, contracts are not exclusive. We want all The Mission NIL student-athletes to thrive under NIL and take advantage of every opportunity that comes their way.
The Mission NIL offers Santa Clara student-athletes near limitless opportunities to engage in NIL activations, including: autograph signings, social media promotions, camps and clinics, charity events, special appearances, commercials, NFTs, and many more! The types of opportunities student-athletes engage in are determined by contributors and our board of directors and advisors.
Yes – businesses and individuals can request specific NIL deals with athletes. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
Student-athletes cannot enter into deals that promote alcohol, drugs, pharmaceuticals, political advertising, pornography, gambling or betting, or other opportunities that go against Santa Clara values. Additionally, there must be quid-pro-quo between the athlete and an individual or business. The Mission NIL seeks to create a wide range of NIL opportunities for student-athletes that help them grow as young men and women, while also giving supporters an opportunity to interact with student-athletes in unique ways.
