President's Message

If I had written down my expectations on January 1, 2020, for my first year as president of The Meadows Foundation, dealing with a pandemic would not have cracked the top 100. That seems naïve now.

It's an understatement to say that last year was rough. There is no way you ended the year the same person who started it.

Like everyone, COVID-19 forced the Foundation to rethink what we were doing and shift our priorities. We had to quickly decide how to keep moving forward while adjusting to the enormous disruptions happening across all areas of our organization.

The Foundation's board and staff were able to maintain a healthy level of funding for our program areas and initiatives while also addressing COVID on multiple levels. We were able to fund immediate needs in housing, food, and health care. And, we planned for long-term statewide needs such as increased demand for mental health services and education support.

$5.3 Million in COVID & Disaster Grants
More than 60 grants were awarded to address the unexpected impacts of the pandemic and Hurricane Laura. From El Paso and the Rio Grande Valley to the Panhandle, North Texas, and East Texas, grants were distributed to organizations across Texas.

127% Increase in Matching Grants
We match donations made by the Meadows family, our Board, and our staff. Last year, the Board doubled the match due to the enormous needs created by COVID. The result was a 125% increase in matches totaling $361,989.

The Collaborative on Homelessness Created
The Foundation started a new conversation around homelessness in Dallas and Collin counties with a small group of funders. It is a complicated issue without easy answers. Even the most persistent among us can feel overwhelmed by the need.

We are grateful to our partners in this new group - Communities Foundation of Texas, The Dallas Foundation, Lyda Hill Philanthropies, Hoblitzelle Foundation, King Foundation, McCune Losinger Family Fund, and United Way of Metropolitan Dallas. They are all taking a chance on these new efforts with us and 2021 looks like we will move forward in a big way.

The sudden shift to remote work accelerated our plans to modernize and streamline operations without any staff reductions. Every Meadows employee has embraced and contributed to new ways of fulfilling our mission. A few even took on entirely new roles while the dust settled for which I am incredibly proud of them.

We also experienced our own personal loss when Mark Meadows passed away in June 2020. Mark was our founders' Al and Virginia Meadows' grandson. He was well-known for his trademark smile, sense of humor, and kindness. His deep affection for his family and the Foundation were second to none. In all, he served on the Foundation's Board for 14 years. The Mark Meadows Fund was established to fund grants for animal welfare and brain health - two areas of great interest to Mark - in honor of his dedication to his grandparents' mission to serve the people of Texas.


Mark Meadows

So, 2020 wasn't what I thought it was going to be. But, it did show why the people of Texas meant so much to Al and Virginia. There is nothing quite like the spirit and generosity of Texans.

It has been an honor to meet and work with those who share the Foundation's mission and are determined to make life better for all.

From the Meadows family, board, and staff - thank you.

Look out for each other and be well,

Peter M. Miller
President & CEO
