Anderson, Barbara


I give because I just love Auburn. I got so much out of Auburn when I was there. I got so much out of Auburn that I want to give back to the university and to the Athletics Department.

As a member of the prestigious Talon Society, Babs Anderson epitomizes the Tigers Unlimited spirit. Her love for Auburn and experience working as a student in the Athletics Department help fuel her continued passion for giving. She, like many donors, understands how her charitable giving through Tigers Unlimited serves as an investment in the futures of Auburn’s student-athletes and the success they experience on the field, in the classroom, and in life.

“These days, in the world of college athletics, it’s all about who has the best facilities and who has the best coaches — and I know it takes the support of many donors for Auburn to compete. I always want us to be at a competitive level,” Anderson said.

Donations to Athletics through the Tigers Unlimited Foundation comprise one-third of Athletics’ annual budget and allow Auburn’s athletics programs to continue striving for preeminence through graduating student-athletes, hiring the best coaches, and maintaining top-notch facilities.
