"Generous NIL contracts will separate teams from the competition. MSU must stay a step ahead of the rest. This is Sparta! will change the game for players, charitable causes and MSU Athletics, all at the same time."---Lorenzo White '87, College Football Hall of Fame '19

Contributions of all amounts are accepted allowing Spartan fans to pool their contributions to make a significant impact with NIL agreements for MSU Student Athletes. Charitable Gift America has a pro bono board of directors with over 100 years of collective non-profit experience. This is Sparta! NIL Fund Advisory Board is Dr. Thomas E. Dieters, Mr. Robert Skandalaris, Ken Mehal, Rebecca Surian, Kirk Gibson and Keith Nichol.

Pooling contributions together will give us the best opportunity to enter into NIL Agreements that will make a significant difference to the student athlete and the communities and charities they support. The goal is to raise significant contributions prior to the Fall '22 Semester, then contract with the student athletes beginning in September 2022 . Fans can contribute in a multitude of ways to the Fund, and our unique ability to provide donors with charitable life income plans (both fixed and variable payments at no cost) opens an entirely new way to support MSU or any of their favorite charities. These arrangements may also qualify towards the Spartan Fund point system.
