Texas A&M Athletics is 100% self-supporting, so all private gifts contribute directly to the needs of our student-athletes, coaches and staff. The Athletics Department receives no funding from the State of Texas. Gifts to the 12th Man Foundation are used to fund A&M Athletics' needs. The Foundation provides a venue through which loyal former students, fans and friends can give financial support to the Athletics Department and receive tax benefits as allowed by the IRS. Private support enables A&M Athletics to increase its standing, in both athletics and academics, over competing universities beyond what can be accomplished with annual revenue from ticket sales, media rights and other licensing agreements.

The Aggie Access 12th Man Priority Points Program is designed to further recognize our donors' commitment to Aggie Athletics, honoring and rewarding their generous financial support and passion over the years.
