IMPACTFUL ANNUAL FUND DONORS

Tara ’87 & Bob ’87 Cahill


What does it mean to you to be involved with the 12th Man Foundation?

It’s very rewarding for us. We are proud to be members of the 12th Man Foundation and are always encouraging others to join or increase their impact. There’s a lot of pride with us –A&M is a part of our identity. We both wear maroon as often as we can. Everyone knows we are die-hard Aggies. We feel like we are doing our part to help build champions, and we keep trying to up our game, do a little more and more the older we get.

Why do you go above and beyond in your support?

It’s a part of selfless service. We learned a lot about that at A&M as one of our core values. We know that you’re supposed to give somehow. Whether it’s money or not, you should be passionate about what you give to. For us, we are all in on Aggie Athletics. It definitely feels like we’re ascending as an athletics program and it feels like we’re ascending as donors right along with it.

What are some of the benefits you enjoy as MVP level donors?

We really enjoy interacting with student-athletes at events like the Summer Meeting. We were able to spend some time last year visiting with Jace Sternberger before anyone knew who he was. It’s really special to get to know the student-athletes and see how hard these young men and women work all the time. We’re proud of how they represent A&M the right way. When you see how much they appreciate what you do to support them, it makes you feel like you have made a difference.

Another perk is getting to peekbehind the curtain a little bit and see what you’re impacting. And we have met so many great, like-minded people. They have the same hobbies and passions as we do and are just as wrapped up in Aggie Athletics. We instantly have a connection.
