LSU gymnast and social media personality Olivia Dunne has partnered with Accelerator Active Energy through her “Livvy Fund,” offering a unique Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) deal to eight of her LSU gymnast teammates.
This collaboration marks the first time that Accelerator Active Energy has engaged in NIL deals through the Livvy Fund, appointing these athletes as brand ambassadors. Dunne played a key role in selecting her fellow gymnasts to benefit from this initiative, with Bayou Traditions and Accelerator also contributing to the criteria for choosing the gymnasts involved.
According to the Fox News piece which first reported on this, The Livvy Fund, initiated by LSU gymnast Olivia Dunne, has selected eight gymnasts for Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) deals with brands. These gymnasts include national champion Konnor McClain, Ashley Cowan, Jillian Hoffman, Chase Brock, KJ Johnson, Haleigh Bryant, Sierra Ballard, and Kiya Johnson.
Established earlier this year, the Livvy Fund aims to connect female student athletes at LSU with leading brands for NIL agreements. Olivia Dunne, highly valued in the current student athlete sphere, is at the forefront of this initiative.
Thanks to some lavish NIL deals secured by dune, she’s become a millionaire while still just a college athlete. For comparison, Dunne, who has an estimated net worth of $3.2 million according to Fox News, is almost on par with male NIL athletes such as LeBron James’ son Bronny who has earned somewhere in the ballpark of $5.9 million.
Dunne’s longterm vision for the Livvy Fund is to use her extensive business connections, gained through her popularity on social media platforms like TikTok and Instagram, to educate other female student athletes so they can make bank too.
This initiative aligns with NCAA’s updated rules, enabling athletes to monetize their name, image, and likeness. So there you go ladies, go out and make that money.
