Being an Alabama alum as well as an Owls alum, I was looking at the different NIL levels available. Honestly, FAU should look at what a school like Bama is doing. Our lowest monthly level is $250/month, while Bama's is $18/month for non-student members. I think if FAU dropped it to like $20 or $25 per month, we might have an easier time driving engagement from casual fans, and begin building a stronger base of giving to keep people engaged, especially if every member got a small piece of autographed swag, like a small poster or something, and keep building the quality of benefits up to things like box seats, an annual collective event in each sport, special newsletter or other media content, meet-and-greets with the athletes, etc. I think it's hard for a lot of people, especially with families, to commit to a minimum of $250/month.

Just my .02 as we watch our team jump into the portal and visit other schools with bigger collectives.

Totally understand and I was caught off-guard by that minimum monthly amount as well. When you already give to the Paradise Club and have season tickets for multiple sports it starts to add up for the average workers with families. But why not just make the one-time donation instead? Let's say $20/month, just make a one-time of $240 for the year and then you don't have to worry about it until next year. Every dollar counts (at least I hope it does).

Yeah I'm definitely going to be making a one-time donation, but I think you'd get more people giving with smaller amounts and the benefits that go with being an ongoing donor. Easier to sell people on getting in on the collective if they're getting signed merch, stickers, invitations to exclusive events, etc.

Yeah here's the Yea Alabama collective page:

I just think we need to make it easier to get people engaged and giving, and build a broader base of donors. If we had a few corporate sponsors to really prime the pump with a 1-time donation to get a couple hundred thousand dollars in the collective, then build a broad base of monthly givers, that would be perfect IMO.

Ok then we don't do a good job of getting it out there then. When I was looking the collective, it took me to the page that had it starting at $250. Getting in on this now then.

I don't know what this collective site is but it's not the site that David and I are talking about. Here's what we're referring to…

https://www.theowlcollective.com

So there's two sites to donate on? As if we needed anymore confusion on all of this.

Just got my basketball season ticket renewal email and this is the link that was in the email so if it's coming directly from the school then "The Owl Collective" seems like the 2nd option to donate.
