Our Mission

We're on a mission to build the best NIL program in the college sports. By making NIL deals more accessible, we're helping student athletes develop the critical business and life skills they need as they transition to life after sports.

FAQs

Have a question you don’t see answered? Email us at: info@garnettrust.com

What type of NIL opportunities exist for student-athletes, and how are they are decided?

Garnet Trust creates experiences and connections between University of South Carolina student-athletes, Gamecocks fans, and businesses. Utilizing their NIL, student-athletes are paid to make media appearances, autograph items, attend events, endorse products, post social media messages, and more.

Garnet Trust works with student-athletes who have indicated they want to take advantage of NIL opportunities.

How can I access Garnet Trust content and/or events?

Some Garnet Trust content is published by our media partner GamecockCentral.com. Other content from student-athletes such as video messages and newsletters is placed in our member portal.

Access to autographs and in-person events is also possible, depending on your membership level.

Garnet Trust recently announced a partnership with Gamecocks+ to provide access to the full library of content via the Gamecocks PLUS Trust Bundle. Learn more and sign up today at GamecocksPlus.com/Bundle

Can I request content or opportunities with certain student-athletes?

We are always open to content creation ideas; drop us a line at info@garnettrust.com.

What percentage of membership revenue goes to NIL deals?

At least 90% of membership revenue – after credit card fees – goes directly to student-athletes. The percentage fluctuates monthly based on operating expenses as well as costs related to fulfilling NIL deals.

Are membership funds tax deductible?

If you’re an individual and would like to make a tax-deductible charitable donation, please contribute to our sister organization Garnet Trust Foundation.

If you operate a business, consult with a tax professional for any potential tax advantages related to NIL and advertising.

How can I pause, cancel, or change my membership?

Email us at help@garnettrust.com and we will be glad to assist.

You don’t have to make a phone call or participate in an online chat. You can also manage your subscription online.
