  Ways to Give

Our stakeholders continue to show their deep affection for the mission and minstry of the Dominican Sisters of Houston. We look forward to your continued support and partnership. Giving opportunities are available in a variety of methods outlined below.

Annual Fund

Each year, the Dominican Sisters of Houston provide the community with the opportunity to show their support through a donation to the sisters' Annual Fund, the primary means of charitable support for the congregation. The Annual Fund assists in furthering the mission and providing support of the sisters.

The Annual Report includes all donors to the Annual Fund, the Guatemalan Mission, the retired sisters' fund and all who have requested honors and memorials from August 1 to July 31. This report is located in The Good News Fall/Winter edition.

Planned Giving

The Dominican Sisters of Houston's legacy in Catholic education and services is deep rooted, and we continue today to serve and to preach the Gospel. When you name the Dominican Sisters of Houston as a beneficiary of your will, life insurance policy, trust, or retirement plan, you help ensure the future of our mission. If support of our mission and sisters is part of your legacy giving in your will or estate plans, please let us know. We would love to thank you for your generous commitment. If you are considering remembering the sisters as part of your estate planning, please contact Laura Henderson at 713-440-3707 or at

  • Name of the person you are recognizing
  • Type of recognition (honor or memorial)
  • Name and address of person to receive acknowledgement of the honor/memorial (the amount of the gift is not disclosed)

Guatemala Mission School

Since 1984 the Dominican Sisters of Houston have sponsored San Vicente de Paul Bethania School in Guatemala City. The school is located in one of the poorest neighborhoods in Guatemala City, but against tremendous odds, the children at our school continue to succeed.  We rely on the generosity of others to help ensure that San Vicente will continue to educate these precious children to better their lives and those of their family.  The cost of sponsoring a child at the school is $25 per month or $300 a year. Please consider sponsoring a child or giving a gift in any amount you choose to ensure our school’s success.
