About Friends of the Heights (FHF)
Friends of the Heights (FHF) is a foundation formed in early November 2022 by a group of Boston College alumni and friends with a mission to service the NIL needs of Eagles student-athletes through community-oriented non-profit organizations.
Student-athletes that participate in the program select a community-oriented charitable organization to donate their time, name, image and likeness. The charity receives the benefit of the student athlete’s time and/or use of the student athlete’s image. In exchange, the student-athlete receives a stipend, funded by donations from individuals and/or organizations.
FHF is independent from Boston College, as the University is prohibited from arranging third party compensation for student athletes and their NIL contracts.
FHF is responsible for receiving donor contributions, managing payments to student athletes, maintaining the fund’s tax-exempt status and reporting to donors.
