Named Gifts

Named Endowments

Creating a named endowment is a meaningful and lasting way to recognize someone special. Endowment gifts are not spent, but invested. Those earnings support Humanities Texas programs in perpetuity.

Please contact us to create a named endowment. In addition to advising you on your gift, we will help you to establish a webpage on the Humanities Texas site. Donors are more than just a name; each has a story to tell—of the programs they love, why they gave, and how their gifts changed their lives and their communities. Named endowments will be featured in our monthly e-newsletter and their pages will remain on the Humanities Texas website permanently.
