In our first year as an organization, we partnered with 20 charitable organizations and 44 students athletes. We're proud to raise awareness for the incredible work that our partners are doing in our communities & provide opportunities for our athletes to grow into community-minded leaders.
The recently announced Hoosiers For Good class includes student athletes from eight sports and brings the total number of charity partners to 20. The class includes athletes from football, men's soccer, women's diving, women's track, baseball, women's basketball, women's water polo, and volleyball. Also included in this class are two participants in the first-of-its-kind Charitable Incubator Program.
Over $2.3 Million Raised to Impact Indiana Charities
Over $1.3 million in donations, sponsorships, and memberships were made to Hoosiers For Good and Hoosiers Connect from November 14 through December 31, 2022, securing a $1 million match pledged from an anonymous donor. With the match, the total amount raised exceeds $2.3 million.
Hoosiers For Good and Stop the Violence Indianapolis have partnered with IU Football to challenge young people to team up to help prevent gun violence. You can help by joining the conversation on social media at #teamupforpeace, by volunteering your time to become a mentor, or by making a donation to Stop the Violence Indianapolis.
With a mission of raising awareness for charitable causes throughout Indiana by pairing local charities with community-minded Hoosier student athletes, Hoosiers For Good forged new paths and partnerships in the present-day NIL era. And the impact was greater than we could have imagined. Our group of 25 Hoosiers For Good student athletes used their platforms and influence to amplify the philanthropic work of 14 local charitable organizations.
Student athletes benefit from NIL opportunities in a way that allows them to use their time and talent to do good—and provides the mentorship and experience to become lifelong community-minded leaders.
