Funding Championship Athletics


12th Man Foundation donors and ticket buyers provide more than half of the athletics department’s annual revenue.

Donor support enables Texas A&M Athletics to increase its standing, in both athletics and academics, over the competition beyond what can be accomplished from conference distributions, multi-media rights and other revenue sources. The athletics department is 100 percent self-supporting, so donations contribute directly to the needs of our student-athletes, coaches and staff

Funding Student-Athlete Scholarships


With 75 percent of 625 student-athletes in 20 sports receiving athletic aid, Texas A&M Athletics’ scholarship costs are exceptionally high.

The average annual cost per in-state scholarship student-athlete is $42,171. For an out-of-state student-athlete, that figure increases to $68,045. Nearly a third of A&M’s student-athletes are from outside the state.
