Fans of Utah State now have the opportunity to support student-athletes directly by becoming a member of Light It Blue. 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%. Light It Blue 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, Light It Blue 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 firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss further. Contributions can be specified for specific sports, programs and activations.

That being said, Light It Blue Collective seeks to provide equal opportunities for both male and female student-athletes.
No, contracts are not exclusive. We want all Light It Blue student-athletes to thrive under NIL and take advantage of every opportunity that comes their way.
Light It Blue offers Utah State 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 email@example.com 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 Utah State values. Additionally, there must be quid-pro-quo between the athlete and an individual or business. Light It Blue Collective 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.
