There are many ways you can support the mission of bringing Healing and Hope to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault and their children by providing a gift for the future.

Estate Planning and Bequests

Your legacy gift to Fort Bend Women's Center can provide important support to our mission while possibly lessening taxes on your estate.  When you are making your estate plans, you can leave a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate to Fort Bend Women's Center. 

Stocks, Bonds and Mutual Funds

Donating appreciated securities is an easy and tax effective way to support the mission of the Fort Bend Women's Center.  By directly transferring your appreciated securities to Fort Bend Women's Center, you can avoid capital gains tax, receive a charitable income tax deduction and help our families. 

Real Estate Property

Your real estate gift can make an important gift to Fort Bend Women's Center.  You will receive a charitable income tax deduction and help further our mission. Additionally, if the property has appreciated in value, you will avoid paying capital gains tax.  You may either deed your property outright to Fort Bend Women's Center or retain a life estate.

Retirement Assets

Designating Fort Bend Women's Center as a beneficiary of all or part of your unused retirement assets, such as your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other deferred plan, is an excellent way to support our mission while potentially avoiding estate taxes. 

Life Insurance

A gift of your paid up life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a gift to Fort Bend Women's Center.  If your policy has now served its original purpose, it would make a wonderful support to our mission.
