Here's How Much Aly Raisman Is Really Worth

At just 27 years old, Aly Raisman has a resume longer than many people twice her age -– and of course, she worked for every single accomplishment on her own. From taking center stage at some of the most memorable moments in sports to using her platform for important causes, she's built a brand for herself as one of the most recognizable faces in gymnastics. 

Being one of the most famous American gymnasts comes with more than just Olympic gold medals. It also comes with plenty of endorsement deals worth millions and even a best-selling book. She was thrust into the limelight at the 2012 Olympics when she won two gold medals at the age of 18, and she's been winning at life ever since. According to Celebrity Net Worth, the retired Fierce Five member is reportedly worth around $4 million! Here's how she earned every penny before the age of 30, inside and out of the gym.

Being a winner has gotten her paid

When you're an Olympian, it sure pays to be on top! Everyone knows top athletes in their sports make money, but did you know Olympic athletes get bonuses for winning big? Aly Raisman's record-breaking wins at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics didn't just put her in the sports history books — they sent her and her fellow gymnasts to the bank! 

At both Olympic Games, Raisman walked away with medals and some extra cash in her pockets. According to Yahoo! Finance, in 2016, Team USA athletes got a hefty payout for every medal won. Athletes like Raisman were paid $25,000 for every gold medal and $15,000 for every silver. That was great news because that year, she famously walked away with two silver medals and one gold. 

Raisman's record-breaking wins were definitely a big deal because at the age of 22, she was considered too old to even compete in gymnastics. Outside of winning cash, she also got to prove everyone wrong. "I'm very proud of that. It's obviously not something people expected or that's easy to do after taking a year off and being the 'Grandma,' as everyone likes to call me. I'm happy I proved everyone wrong" (per ESPN).

The Olympian gets paid for her inspiring words

Even though she's retired, the work doesn't stop! From encouraging young athletes to speaking out about the abuse she and her fellow gymnasts faced, Aly Raisman remains in the public eye, with an eager audience listening to every word. According to the Athlete Speakers booking agency, Raisman can be booked for speaking engagements around the world. The reported price point is estimated to be anywhere from $50,000 to $100,000. 

People who attend her speaking engagements will probably hear an honest Raisman cover everything from the pressures of being a woman in sports to mental health and sexual abuse issues. Raisman believes being outspoken about your troubles is all a part of being a role model. In an interview with Shape, Raisman said, "For me, a role model is someone who is their true self, and that doesn't mean it's always easy. But I think people who are really honest and vulnerable about what they're going through ... set a good example by allowing other people to feel safe to share what they're going through." 

That inspiring level of honesty could also be found in the pages of her New York Times best-seller, "Fierce: How Competing for Myself Changed Everything." In it, she details the inspiring journey toward success as well as the hardships she faced behind the scenes. Typically, celebrities like her are reported to earn anywhere from $1 million to $8 million in advance money.

Aly Raisman's childhood home sold for $2.5 million

By 2018, Aly Raisman had two successful Olympic appearances under her belt, which meant the Raisman family could afford a major upgrade in their lifestyle. The family ended up putting their massive home up for sale. This five-bedroom, six-bedroom estate in Boston went on the market for a whopping $2,499,000 (per Boston Real Estate). Why was the home so expensive? Well, it featured everything a large family would want in a dream home. Some of the luxurious features included a full-size tennis court, basketball court, a library, and a spacious gym in the basement where the famous Olympian did all her gold medal training. The family ended up moving into an even bigger home that they built on the same street -– perfectly named Aly Raisman Way.

The hometown hero currently doesn't live too far away from her loved ones. During the pandemic, she quarantined alone in her own apartment in Boston and enjoyed a small break from the usual schedule of traveling and giving motivational speeches.

The 2012 Olympics got the gymnast plenty of sponsorships

At the 2012 Olympics, the Fierce Five took the world by storm. Aly Raisman and her teammates took to the major stage and showed off their girl power, their talent, and even their relatable parents. As they brought home the gold, they became household names, with million-dollar sponsorships just waiting for their signatures. In 2012, according to Forbes, Raisman was predicted to earn as much as $1 million a year in endorsement money after returning from the Olympics. Though no specific numbers have been revealed, we do know plenty of big-name companies jumped at the chance to have the young champ become the face of their famous brands. 

Since her Olympics debut, Raisman has inked deals with Pandora Jewelry, Poland Spring Water, Ralph Lauren, Olay, Silk Ultra, and UBREVLY. Each of Raisman's current contract earnings are kept private, but in 2017, ESPN ranked her no. 99 on their list of 100 Most Famous Athletes Worldwide and reported that she took in around $450,000 from endorsement deals that year alone. That's winning big!

Aly Raisman is always giving back

Like many athletes, Aly Raisman's name has become synonymous with outspoken activism. She not only lends her voice to important causes involving women, she lends her money too. She helped raise over $150,000 to support lung cancer research. The money was raised in honor of her grandmother, who died in 2011. "My grandmother was an inspiration to me. She told me never to give up on my dream. I feel honored to have played a role in raising the funds to create a research grant in her name," Raisman said.

In August 2021, Raisman and long-time sponsor Olay partnered with Million Women Mentors to offer 1,000 female high school students mentorship from other women in STEM. She told Refinery29, "A lot of people are passionate about getting into STEM, but they might not feel that they have the support that they need, or they might not have the tools and the resources to get into it." That isn't the only way Raisman is giving back. When launching her line of activewear with Aerie, she promised 15% of proceeds, ($75,000) would be donated to Darkness to Light, an organization dedicated to preventing childhood sexual abuse. And in September 2021, Raisman teamed up with Lifetime for a special to remind survivors that they are never alone. 

Aly Raisman has earned herself Olympic medals, money, and the title of role model for always using her fame and platform to give back to other young athletes and survivors, redefining what it means to be a true winner.
