12TH MAN FOUNDATION
Priority Point Bonus Program
In recognition of what donor support makes possible for Texas A&M Athletics and in response to the COVID-19 health crisis, the 12th Man Foundation Board of Trustees has approved a limited-time priority point bonus program for season ticket holders and donors.
Priority Point Bonuses
The 12th Man Foundation will be granting a 2X priority point bonus for new philanthropic annual gifts made through Dec. 31, 2020.
Philanthropic annual gifts supply Texas A&M student-athletes with a first-class education and championship-caliber resources while providing the yearly financial support needed to compete at the highest level.
12th Man Foundation donors and ticket buyers are vital to funding every Texas A&M athletic program and student-athlete on and off the field.
Over 50 percent ($76 million) of Texas A&M Athletics' operating budget is directly funded by 12th Man Foundation donors and ticket buyers of all Aggie sports. Football tickets and contributions are the lifeblood for Aggie Athletics accounting for $65.4 million of the athletics department's revenue and is critical to providing essential resources for student-athletes like nutrition, academic support and mental health services.
The financial commitment of our season ticket holders is crucial to funding championship athletics at Texas A&M. The 12th Man Foundation and Texas A&M Athletics have recently instituted budget reductions exceeding 10 percent in this very challenging time for our university, state and country. The leadership of both organizations will continue to evaluate our environment and enact further reductions as appropriate.
Ticket purchases and donor contributions are crucial to sustaining Texas A&M Athletics’ ability to provide resources for student-athletes and compete at the highest levels while remaining 100 percent self-supporting.
The 12th Man Foundation remains committed to funding championship athletics at Texas A&M, and because of the support from our loyal season ticket holders and donors, Aggie Athletics has the opportunity to emerge strong and ready to compete for championships.
Your Support Provides Unmatched Opportunities for Student-Athletes
In addition to providing life-changing athletic and academic opportunities, 12th Man Foundation donors and ticket buyers directly support the athletics department's operating budget providing Aggie student-athletes with best-in-class services, coaches, staff and facilities.
