1892 Society

DePelchin Children's Center has depended on the generosity of others since its inception in 1892. The 1892 Society was established to recognize those generous supporters who have included the DePelchin Children's Center in their long-term plans through a bequest, life-income gift, or other legacy gifts. All legacy gifts are made to the Foundation for DePelchin Children's Center to benefit the programs and services of DePelchin Children's Center.

The 1892 Society honors the tradition of generosity and foresight that began in 1892 when Kezia Payne DePelchin first opened the doors of DePelchin Faith Home. By becoming a member of the 1892 Society, you are recognizing the valuable and important role DePelchin Children's Center has played in Houston over the past century, and you are helping to guarantee that DePelchin Children's Center has the means to offer help and compassion to children and families for generations to come.

If you have already included the Foundation for DePelchin Children's Center in a bequest or other legacy gifts, we hope you will let us know. Your willingness to be listed as a member of the 1892 Society encourages others to follow your example. We acknowledge and respect those who wish to remain anonymous, but we urge you to let us know of your plans on a confidential basis in any case. It supports planning for the future of DePelchin Children's Center.

If you have not yet included DePelchin Children's Center in your plans and you would like to explore the best options for you and your family, do not hesitate to contact Audrey Wargo Donadi via email: [email protected]. You may also fill out the form found below.

DePelchin Children's Center, or any of its representatives, does not provide legal or tax advice. Please consult your legal or financial advisor regarding any proposed deferred gift arrangement to be made through your estate plan.
