The 12th Man Foundation's mission is to enhance Texas A&M's athletic success by funding scholarships, programs and facilities in support of championship athletics.
The 12th Man Foundation began as The Aggie Club in 1950 as a fundraising support group for Texas A&M Athletics. The Aggie Club set out to fulfill their mission of fundraising and hit big milestones, such as $100,000 in annual donations in 1966 and $1 million in annual donations in 1977. In 1988, The Aggie Club officially became the 12th Man Foundation and continued to hit amazing milestones. Throughout the years, the 12th Man Foundation's support grew which brought to campus 5-star facilities and 5-star student-athletes. With each season that goes by, the 12th Man Foundation is successfully chasing after their mission to support championship athletics.
