Jackets for Atlanthropy was founded in May 2022 by Bo Stapler, a Georgia Tech alum that works as a doctor in Billings, Montana. He formed the charity-minded NIL collective to meet the opportunity presented by local Atlanta charities to involve Georgia Tech student-athletes in their amazing work. “The result was a collaboration among Georgia Tech fans, student-athletes, and Atlanta charities to serve their community and have fun doing it,” Jackets for Atlanthropy’s website says. “Our passion is to promote the growth and development of this unique partnership in order to provide care for more Atlantans in need while ripening the hearts of the fans and athletes lucky enough to engage in such efforts.” Jackets for Atlanthropy’s aim is to provide stipends to Tech athletes for taking part in charitable activities, such as making meals for the homebound or serving at a soup kitchen and promoting participation through social media. The plan is not dissimilar from collectives that have formed at other schools that offer compensation to athletes for supporting charities.
