Annual Report

The Meadows Foundation exists to assist people and institutions of Texas improve the quality and circumstances of life for themselves and future generations.


2022 was a transitional year for the country, the State of Texas, and The Meadows Foundation. We’re beginning to usher in a new era on many horizons. However, our mission stays the same as in 1948 when Al and Virginia Meadows first started the Foundation, to serve the people of Texas in perpetuity.

When it began to look like we saw a light at the end of the tunnel with the COVID pandemic, we had to plan what this next stage looked like for us—the two-plus years of working through the ups and downs of the pandemic had us all looking over our shoulders for the next obstacle.

It’s heartening to say that during 2020 and 2021, over $7 million of grants went to COVID-related issues. We didn’t lose focus on the importance of our long-term initiatives, and we could return to them in full force this past year.

I want to highlight some of our significant grantmaking efforts in mental health, education, and homelessness.

Mental Health

The Meadows Foundation created the Meadows Mental Health Policy Institute nine years ago. The mission was to have an independent, nonpartisan policy institute that works at the intersection of policy and programs to create equitable systemic changes so Texans can obtain the health care they need. The work done at the Institute has been helping shape the way we talk about mental health in Texas.

We knew that Texas children were struggling with their mental health. As one of the most vulnerable populations, their lives had been in upheaval for years with no plans set on how to help them. One of the things that was able to help this crisis was the Texas Child Mental Health Care Consortium’s innovative programs.

And then, alongside that, reality shifted for everyone after the horrific attack at Robb Elementary School on May 24, 2022. The tragic loss of 19 children and two teachers in Uvalde shook our state and our people to their core. We had to examine how we could assist in healing the trauma so many children were going through. The Institute was a major support to mental health funding in Uvalde, and The Foundation was also able to support recovery services through the bereavement center.

Mental health has always been a crucial focus for the Foundation, and the grantees we help fund are changing the mental health landscape in Texas.


School systems across the state continued the work to emerge from the disruptive effects of the pandemic this past year. While there remains much work to do, Texas students have nearly reached pre-pandemic literacy proficiency levels, which shows encouraging signs. Public education leaders seek answers to tough questions about teacher and school leader training, retention, and school safety. Many of our grantees work alongside our public sector leaders to ensure the best outcomes for our students and teachers in the coming years.

Dallas College, a key partner in our teacher preparation initiative, continues to influence state and national conversations around early childhood, K-12 education, and teacher preparation. As the first community college in the state to offer a four-year degree in education and the first to win a Department of Labor teacher apprenticeship, the college is raising the bar for how new teachers enter the profession, how they are trained, and how they are supported in the first years of their career.


The Meadows Foundation began working on homelessness in late 2019. We engaged Mandy Chapman Semple, CEO of Clutch Consulting, to help rethink how we addressed this complex issue. This included working with the continuum of care providers to work better together.

The foundational systematic change that Mandy and her team were able to accomplish in 2020 provided a platform to receive $72 million from the City and County of Dallas, other surrounding cities, and private funders, including The Meadows Foundation. These funds were to support a R.E.A.L. Time Rapid Rehousing Initiative. This past year, the initiative was on track for its initial goals.

Now, in 2023, they’ve seen a 32% decrease in chronic homelessness and a 14% decrease in unsheltered homelessness. This has set them on the road to expand their goal to serve 6,000 individuals and families by 2025. The commitment that the Foundation made early on provided a path for the American Rescue Plan fund (ARPA) to be deployed to create a significant impact on helping people without housing in the Dallas area.

I’m proud to say that we also saw the fourth generation of Meadows family members take a vested interest in becoming part of our mission to serve the people of Texas, and we were able to showcase the best parts of this great state to them. Watching the youngest members of our family become immersed in our community and in the work we do inspired me and the staff, who showed them the very best of Texas when they visited in September 2022. 

2022 was the year to continue to keep our eye on immediate needs and continue to fund our long-term initiatives. I wouldn’t say we have the wind at our backs, but maybe a slight breeze. My thanks to the Foundation’s Board of Directors and staff, and the Meadows family members. Your tireless work and support have allowed us to do many good things for the people of Texas.

Look out for each other and be well,

Peter M. Miller
President & CEO

Our Founders

Algur Hurtle Meadows was born in Vidalia, Georgia, in 1899. Virginia Garrison Stuart was born in Ryan, Oklahoma, in 1902. After moving around the south, Al settled in Shreveport, where he met Virginia. They married in 1922. Al worked for Standard Oil by day and went to law school at night.

Al left Standard Oil to start his own finance firm and later founded an oil and gas production company. In 1936, they moved to Dallas where Al built General American Oil Company of Texas into one of the largest independent producers in the nation.

Al and Virginia chose Texas to receive their wealth as a perpetual gift to the state and its people who had been so generous to them. At the heart of their philanthropy was always a commitment to be a beacon for good in Texas.


John William Broadfoot Sr.

John William Broadfoot Sr. (1935-2022) was the grandson of Dr. John and Sally Meadows and the nephew of founders Al and Virginia Meadows. He served as a director and trustee of The Meadows Foundation for over 25 years. John served in the U.S. Army and Air Force. After completing his tour of duty, he became a Second lieutenant in the U.S. Army Medical Corp. He returned to Texas where he served as an assistant district attorney for Potter County in Amarillo, Texas. He later opened a private practice, practicing civil and criminal law.
