Two Sisters (On the Terrace) by Pierre-August Renoir

The Lowe Foundation was created in 1988 by Erma Lowe and her daughter Mary Ralph Lowe. Their goal is to give back to the State of Texas by supporting women and children's health and educational needs. Since its inception, The Lowe Foundation has assisted over 400 organizations.

The Foundation is currently represented in two broad regions within the State of Texas as follows:

  • Dallas/Ft. Worth
    Lead Trustees: Mary Ralph Lowe, Diana Strauss and Samantha Yost Pace
  • Austin/San Antonio/Close Surrounding Area
    Lead Trustee: Clayton Maebius

The funding focus is directed to those organizations that are involved in preventative or rehabilitative programs that benefit the critical needs of at risk women and children located in the State of Texas.
