WHO WE ARE
Eyeballer Inc. was established as a Domestic Nonprofit Corporation in the State of Virginia on August 22, 2018. The United States Department of the Treasury, Internal Revenue Service certified Eyeballer, Inc as a Public Charity and exempt from Federal Income Tax under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code on Date. Contributions to Eyeballer, Inc are deductible under section 170 of the Code.
Many of the student-athletes participating in their school athletic programs are already being identified and publicly recognized by some of the largest universities in the country. These institutions are willing to pay the bulk, if not all of the tuition for these student-athletes. Because of this early exposure, their futures are already being secured.
There is another level of undergraduate student-athlete who also is afforded opportunities for his/her education and, perhaps, a future career as well. This individual is exceptional both academically and athletically but may not be recognized by any NCAA Division I, II or III colleges or even NAIA schools or Junior colleges. In some cases, these student-athletes are assisted by their coaches and student counselors in gaining recognition. Others, through the parental initiative, may hire professional sports marketing groups to help find the academic and athletic match for their student-athletes. These organizations use their extensive technical communication capabilities to expose these student-athletes on a national basis and subsequently allow them to connect with the appropriate college or university. This approach has a remarkable success rate! However, many parents while not in the financial position to even afford full college tuition for their athlete, they certainly cannot engage the services of a sports marketing professional group that would expose the talents of these young athletes. Subsequently, their child’s formal education may end at the time of high school graduation.
The non-profit organization, Eyeballer, was formed in 2018 and is dedicated to helping underserved student-athletes that have proven themselves academically, are involved in their high school and community activities and have the passion to play their sport at the next level. With the opinion and recommendation of the player’s coach, school academic records and national collegiate testing scores, selected students and their families will be interviewed for potential selection. Scholastic performance levels on the SAT/ACT exams have been set high so that acceptance by the gaining university is attainable in this highly competitive arena. The interview process will allow Eyeballer Selection Committee Members to evaluate financial need, parental support, and commitment of the student applicant.
