As the calendar winds down and our thoughts turn to the holidays, we begin to think not only about how we will observe the traditional festivities but also what we can give to those most special to us. Often, not just any gift will do, we want our present to recognize the important place they hold in our hearts. May we suggest an honor gift made to STCH Ministries?
Honor and memorial gifts are thoughtful ways you can personally contribute to the ongoing care of children in South Texas. An honor gift is a contribution you make in honor of a friend or family member who is still living. A memorial gift is a beautiful way to celebrate the life of a loved one after they have passed away.
Bequests are handled with gratitude and sensitivity. In the case of a memorial gift, a suitable notice of your gift and expression of sympathy will be handwritten and sent to the family of the deceased. For donations made in honor of another, that person will also receive a personal note advising them of your kindness. The amount of the gift is never revealed unless requested by you.
Giving in this manner is easy; you may print an Honor Gift Form or a Memorial Gift Form to fill in and send in with your donation. You may also make these gifts online. (Select the tab labeled Honor or Memorial Gifts on our donation form.) Each gift of this nature received at STCH Ministries is invested in our permanent funds, which are used to help with educational, medical, and general expenses for our children. The first priority goes to educational and medical needs.
The English clergyman Robert South said, “If there be any truer measure of a man than by what he does, it must be by what he gives.” Giving honor and memorial gifts through STCH Ministries is a gift that is a double blessing: distinguishing someone you care about and making a difference in the lives of children and families at the same time.
