What is WIN BIG?

WIN BIG is a NIL fundraising campaign organized by Montlake Futures, the NIL collective supporting all UW student-athletes. It aims to increase NIL opportunities for University of Washington student-athletes across all sports, champion the success of current and future Husky student-athletes through NIL, and support elite talent at UW.

How does it work? 

As the football staff and the rest of the athletic programs continue to use the summer to build on the already strong recruiting classes, the fundraiser’s giveaways will continue until the last day of August. Once the window is closed, Montlake Futures will announce the winners of the various prizes.

Husky Fans can join the Montlake Futures membership or max a tax-deductible gift at

How does this support Husky student-athletes?

NIL helps Husky student-athletes make positive contributions to our local communities while receiving compensation and growing their respective brands. The resources they earn from these impactful opportunities help them stay competitive in their chosen sport and in the classroom and set them up for life after UW.

Why is this important? 

In the new era of NIL, support of Montlake Futures is imperative to the success of UW athletics. This is a critical time for the UW football team as it continues to build its new roster amid coaching changes.
