Ways to Give

Your support is vital to the continuation and development of our current programs and to the future of new humanities initiatives in Texas. It is critical that our programming keep pace with the state’s remarkable growth and change.

Unrestricted Giving

An unrestricted gift, whenever possible, will be allocated to the Humanities Texas endowment to ensure the future of our programs and activities. Gifts can be made with cash, stocks, by bequest, or via other Planned Giving vehicles.

A gift made in your estate plan makes a lasting impact on the citizens of Texas. A planned gift can be made now or after your lifetime and may help you to enjoy financial benefits for yourself and your loved ones. To learn more about the various possibilities, please visit our Planned Giving page.
