Our Leadership

Al and Virginia Meadows were devoted to their family. They entrusted the Foundation’s governance to them and public-spirited advisors in their wish to share their joy of giving. This opportunity and responsibility has been passed down through three generations and across seven branches of the Meadows family.

They all share a dedication to serving Texas and ensuring the perpetuity of the Foundation’s resources and impact.
