Mary Nicholas Legacy Society

The Mary Nicholas Legacy Society honors visionary individuals who choose to invest in the future of Houston’s children with a planned gift benefiting Casa de Esperanza.  

Mary Nicholas had a love for children and a dream that she could one day help children in need. In 1990, “Miss Mary” generously donated land to Casa de Esperanza. With the opening of the Casa de Esperanza Neighborhood in 2008, her dream is now a reality. Miss Mary’s love for children will continue as future generations of children heal, flourish, and grow on this beautiful land.

The Mary Nicholas Legacy Society unites donors who are committed to breaking the generational cycle of child abuse and neglect while transforming the greater Houston community. When you make a legacy gift to Casa de Esperanza you contribute to our long-term financial security and stability. You don’t need to be wealthy to make a legacy gift. With thoughtful planning you can make a significant gift that will benefit Casa de Esperanza and provide hope to Houston’s most vulnerable children and families while meeting your personal philanthropic objectives.

Legacy gifts may include:

  •       Bequests (Wills)
  •       IRA/Retirement Account Beneficiary
  •       Life Insurance Policy Beneficiary

In addition to making a lasting impact on the future of Houston’s children, your legacy gift may have potential tax benefits, both immediate and for your estate. Casa de Esperanza is not a professional financial advising organization. Any information provided does not constitute financial or legal advice. Please consult your personal financial, legal and/or tax counsel before drafting any legal documents.
