1952 Legacy Society

What is the 1952 Legacy Society?

The 1952 Legacy Society is a giving society that was created to recognize planned gifts to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston. The Legacy Society will provide donors the opportunity to make a lasting gift to the Clubs through their estate. These gifts ensure that the future needs of youth and teens in the Greater Houston area are met and might be included in a will, a charitable gift annuity, a trust or an insurance policy.

Why Should I Become a Member?

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston provides a safe, affordable place for kids and teens during critical out-of-school time in 23 Clubs across the Greater Houston area. While we have seen tremendous growth and success, there is still more work to be done as we continue to increase the number of youth we serve. We have a bold plan to close the opportunity gap by scaling our life-changing impact, preparing our kids and teens to be the problem solvers, innovators and leaders who shape our world. Your support through a planned gift ensures that future generations will have the opportunity to live successful and productive lives in a safe, positive and caring environment.
