A Note from our Chairman

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

In 2022, we marked the 80th anniversary of the Moody Foundation. Our journey has been guided by a deep commitment to the people of Texas and a vision of positive change. I am filled with profound gratitude and reflection.

Over these eight decades, we have witnessed the transformative power of philanthropy in action. We have seen lives transformed through education, communities revitalized through green spaces, and the arts flourish as a reflection of our rich culture. We have partnered with incredible organizations and individuals who share our mission and vision, and together, we have made a meaningful impact. But our work is far from over.

As we look ahead, we see new challenges and opportunities on the horizon. The world – and Texas – is changing rapidly. The Moody Foundation is committed to adapting to the ever-changing needs of our communities and to continue to serve as a beacon of hope and support for those in need.

I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to our partners, supporters and the dedicated individuals who have been part of this incredible journey. Your unwavering commitment has been instrumental in our success. As we celebrate our 80th anniversary, let us not only look back on the distance we have traveled but also look forward to the path ahead. Together, we can continue to make a difference, and I am excited to see where the next chapters of our journey will take us.
