Margaret Alkek Williams understands the power of philanthropy to transform lives and make the world a better place.

Rose and Harry Cullen have been friends of UNICEF since the regional office in Houston opened 30 years ago.  They have served on numerous UNICEF event committees, supporting local fundraising events in Houston for years. They have been donors and advocates for UNICEF’s work, introducing UNICEF to new donors and friends.  Rose serves on the board of Harris County Hospital District Foundation, Houston Ballet, Houston Eye Associates Foundation, Board of Visitors of the MD Anderson Cancer Center, Moores School of Music, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, University of Texas Medical Branch Galveston, St. Agnes Academy Foundation, University of Houston, and more.  They were largely responsible for the growth of the University of Houston and were also known for their major contributions toward health and education in Texas. Harry and Rose have established a scholarship endowment at St. Agnes Academy where she graduated in 1955.
