A Letter from our CEO

30 October, 2017


It is appropriate that this message begins with a word of gratitude to all those who have made a financial investment in Texas A&M Athletics. Your dedication, passion and support are the pillars of our success, so thank you for what you do to make this one of the highest-achieving collections of student-athletes in the nation.

The 12th Man Foundation has been my home for 17 years, and leading this organization is a tremendous honor. Much of that stems from the great pride so many Aggies have for this university. Similarly, it is humbling to be able to serve the staff of this organization, all of whom work tirelessly to help fulfill our mission of funding scholarships, programs and facilities in support of championship athletics.

With that in mind, I would like to share with you four principles I have impressed on our staff in recent weeks. These truths should be what guide every decision we make and every interaction we have with you, our valued donors.

Respect — Donors are the reason this organization exists, and our commitment is that each will be treated with respect in every interaction.

Accuracy — This quality is crucial in every communication with our stakeholders.

Service — Our calling is to serve Texas A&M University, A&M Athletics and 12th Man Foundation donors.

Excellence — In all that we do, our desire is to be the best. While we do not profess to be perfect, a high standard of excellence is our goal. You deserve nothing less.

If we can succeed in meeting those tenets every day, great things will happen for this organization, its donors and Texas A&M Athletics.

We look forward to serving you.

Gig 'em,

Travis Dabney '96
President and CEO
