Developing NIL Opportunities for USF Dons

A New Era for College Athletics

NCAA student-athletes are now entitled to benefit financially for use
of their name, image, and likeness (NIL).

The Hilltop Club, a San Francisco based LLC aims to support USF Athletics by helping Dons student-athletes capitalize on their name, image and likeness (NIL) through corporate partnerships and endorsements, building community connections around charitable causes, and fostering professional development and leadership opportunities.

The Hilltop Club reflects the values and principles of USF and the San Francisco Bay Area community in compliance with university, NCAA, state and federal policies and legislation.

  1. Traditional corporate partnerships and product endorsements
  2. Event appearances, social media campaigns, autograph sales, etc.
  3. Charitable and community initiatives focused on volunteering, leadership and professional growth
