Tom and Judy Love

Tom and Judy Love

For Tom and Judy Love, their road to becoming effective philanthropists began in 1964 when they leased an abandoned filling station in Watonga, Oklahoma. From this humble beginning, their family-owned and operated company, Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores, has grown to include hundreds of locations in 41 states and is one of the country’s top privately-owned companies.

Through hard work and determination, Tom and Judy Love, and now their children and grandchildren, have created a successful enterprise. It is with this same hard work and determination that they approach their charitable endeavors, giving freely of both time and money.

In 1999, the couple established the Love Family Affiliated Fund as a way for the family to work together to provide for the charitable causes they care about. Judy served as an Oklahoma City Community Foundation Trustee from 2002-11, their daughter Jenny Love-Meyer has been a Trustee since 2012.
