Or call Mary Catherine Benavides at 214-443-7770.

Tribute Gifts

You may designate The Family Place as the beneficiary of a gift in honor or in memory of a loved one. Celebrate the holidays in the true spirit of giving by donating in lieu of holiday gifts.

Stocks, Bonds and Mutual Funds

Make your contribution go further! Donating directly from a stock, bond or mutual fund allows us to receive a larger donation while saving you money mcbenavides@familyplace.org to receive transfer instructions and applicable forms to assist you in completing your gift to The Family Place. You must contact your broker to initiate the actual transaction.

Planned Giving

Make a transformational gift that won’t cost you a thing! Planned gifts provide the resources that create extraordinary opportunities and preserve our future. There are many easy giving options ranging from naming us as a beneficiary in your will to more complex trust arrangements. Please consult with your estate planning attorney to determine the right plan to achieve your goals.

Examples of planned gifts include:

  • Gifts by will or living trust — Give to The Family Place without affecting your cash flow during your lifetime.
  • Gifts of retirement plans — Your retirement plan may be worth more when donated to The Family Place than to your heirs.
  • Gifts of life insurance — Create a significant endowment for The Family Place without dipping into your capital assets.
