Buffs4Life NIL Collective - Colorado Buffaloes Collective
The Buffs4Life Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides financial assistance and mental health resources for former Colorado athletes. In late October 2022, it announced the creation of the Buffs4Life NIL Collective to support current Colorado athletes through NIL opportunities. Prior to the launch of the Buffs4Life NIL Collective, the only collective or membership-based community designed to support Colorado athletes was the Boulder NIL Club, which is backed by the company YOKE. Buffs4Life NIL Collective's website says, "A tax-deductible financial contribution to the Buffs4Life NIL Collective can be made to the general fund that supports all CU student-athletes or to a specific team, group of student-athletes, or an individual student-athlete. 15% of every donation goes to the Buffs4Life Foundation while the rest goes directly towards compensating student-athletes for their name, image and likeness."
