Walker Foundation
       
 
The Alex C. Walker Educational and Charitable Foundation has filled a unique niche among grant-giving institutions in that it addresses issues related to the causes of market imbalances, the exploration of market-based solutions, protection of the free enterprise system, and the dissemination of such information. The trust operates as a family foundation with Dr. Thomas Walker, Jr. and Barrett P. Walker serving as family trustees and PNC Bank serving as the corporate trustee.
