J.J. McCarthy is following through on his pledge earlier this year to donate a portion of his Name, Image and Likeness (NIL) earnings back to charity.
Michigan’s freshman quarterback announced late Monday plans to disperse a sum of more than $10,000 to various children’s hospitals and a fund benefitting the victims of the Oxford High School shooting.
• The biggest portion, $3,000, will be donated to the Oxford school fund, benefitting families affected by the recent shooting at Oxford High School that killed four and injured seven.
• $2,000 each will be donated to the Charles Woodson Clinical Research Fund at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor and internship program at Lurie’s Children’s Hospital in Chicago.
• $1,000 each will be donated to the Dance Marathon 4 Kids at the University of Nebraska Children’s Hospital and Little Heroes League, “benefitting multiple hospitals.”
• $500 each will go to the Hurley Children’s Hospital Pediatric Public Health center in East Lansing, Penn State Children’s Hospital and the “Safe Kids Baltimore” fund at the University of Maryland Children’s Hospital.
In total, McCarthy plans to donate $10,500 of money earned from his NIL ventures.
