Barbara Allen

Foundation President

Barbara A. Allen was appointed to President of the Tarleton State University Foundation, Inc. effective January 2018.


I am honored to be the President of the Foundation Board this year and am committed to advancing the goals set forward by the students, faculty, staff and friends of the University. This year promises to be extraordinary; the Ft. Worth campus breaks ground in February and invigorating discussions regarding the possibility of moving to a Division 1 Football team can be heard everywhere!

There is such excitement in the Tarleton Texan Nation this year; Dr. Dottavio's visions for the campus have come to fruition: the General Rudder Memorial Statue is extraordinary and the new football stadium is state of the art.

The Tarleton State University Foundation's Board's mission is to provide financial support to benefit students' accomplishments, potential and their ability to contribute to and learn from others in the university community.

Tarleton continues to excel in all areas and we thank all of you who have contributed generous gifts to the Foundation. Your continued support is essential and the Foundation is continually developing creative ways that gifts can be made which are mutually beneficial including annuity plans.

I look forward to meeting many of you this year. Please contact our office at 254-968-9421; we'd like to hear from you!

Best regards,

Barbara Ann Allen JD
