Memorial Gifts

Honor or memorialize someone special by making a gift in their name to the Houston Area Women’s Center. We will send an acknowledgment of your gift to the person you honored or to the family of the person you memorialized without disclosing your donation amount.

Planned Giving

A planned gift is any gift, made in lifetime or at death, as part of a donor’s overall financial and/or estate planning. Planned gifts can be made in cash, real estate, stocks, bonds, personal property or life insurance.

To begin planning, please work with your attorney or accountant to explore the many gift opportunities available to you and the financial advantages of each. To speak with someone in our office, please email us at

    • Bequests by Will. One of the simplest planned gifts is a bequest through your will in which you designate a specific amount or percentage of your estate to the Houston Area Women’s Center. A bequest also can reduce the amount of your taxable estate, which may increase the actual amount available to loved ones.
    • Life Insurance. Contributions of life insurance can provide a substantial gift, and the value of an ordinary policy at the time of the gift is tax deductible.

Donate Stock

Did you know that when you donate stock, you avoid the tax on the gain while deducting 100% of the value of the contribution? When you give stock, you may earn 2-3x the tax savings vs. donating cash. It is a win-win. And now it’s fast, safe and easy to do. The Houston Area Women’s Center has partnered with to enable our supporters to make stock donations in 10 minutes or less. Our DonateStock page enables you to donate stock from your brokerage directly to our account through a secure portal, making the gifting process fast, safe and easy.
