Each contribution—large or small—brings us a step closer to serving more abused children in Houston. Each year about one-third of our contributions come from individual donors.
There are many different ways to support the mission of Child Advocates, but when you plan a gift as part of your overall estate and financial plans, you will allow us to continue to speak up for abused children who are lost in the system for years to come. With your gift, you could also receive substantial tax and financial benefits, and you will be welcomed as a member of the Bernie Powell Legacy Society.
