There are many ways you can be a blessing to our friends in need - mail a check, request an employer match, prepare for the future with planned giving or through stocks.
Your donation to the Society takes a moment but the impact can last a lifetime. If you have additional questions regarding financial donations, please contact our Director of Development.
Mail a check
We accept donations in the form of a check. Please make sure to make the check out to:
Society of St. Vincent de Paul
c/o Director of Development
2403 Holcombe Blvd.
Houston, TX 77021
Honorarium or Memorial Fund
Make a gift in honor of or in memory of a loved one. When you make a tribute or memorial gift, the Society sends a letter to the recipient or the recipient's family letting them know of your gift. The amount of your gift is not disclosed. We will also send a tax acknowledgement letter to you.
Check with your employer to find out if the Society of St. Vincent de Paul might be eligible for your company's matching gift program.
Matching gifts can double, triple, or even quadruple the impact your single donation will have on those in need.
Instead of donating the after-tax proceeds from the sale of your appreciated securities, consider increasing your impact by donating stocks, bonds, and mutual funds directly to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul through the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.
An endowment is a fund of assets, the principal of which is held in perpetuity and invested and from which an organization may receive distributions equal to only a percentage of the principal on an annual basis. Unlike a personal savings account, the endowment is not a cash reserve that the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (“the Society) can draw on at will. All endowed funds are invested with a long-term goal of achieving investment returns that exceed the distributions from the fund.
