About


Partners Card 2014, presented by Bank of Texas, is the only sale where you truly save.  That is, save lives and support the critical work of The Family Place.

Partners Card is the signature fundraiser for The Family Place, one of the longest-serving family violence service providers in the state. The Partners Card effort has raised over $13 million to help break the cycle of domestic violence in our community.

100% of your Partners Card purchase goes directly to supporting survivors of family violence.

Here's HOW it works:

  • Purchase a Partners Card for $70
       - Call Partners Card hotline at 214.443.7754 or visit
    www.partnerscard.org by October 18.
