Donate Items to The Family Place Resale Shop:

Our Resale Shop accepts donations and provide free clothing, household items and furniture to clients as necessary. We have a great team and volunteers that support the resale shop; the stores’ excess donated inventory is sold to the general public to raise funds for programs for survivors of domestic violence. CLICK HERE to learn more about donation guidelines and information about The Family Place Resale Shop!

Stocks, Bonds and Mutual Funds:

We welcome gifts of stocks, bonds or mutual funds.  To initiate the transaction, please contact your broker and then reach out to mcbenavides@familyplace.org to receive transfer instructions and applicable forms to assist you in completing your gift to The Family Place. 

Planned Giving:

Planned gifts provide stability and help ensure The Family Place will be able to meet the future needs of domestic violence survivors. Please consult with your estate planning attorney to determine the right plan to achieve your goals.

Examples of Planned Gifts Include:

  • Gifts by will or living trust — Give to The Family Place without affecting your cash flow during your lifetime.

  • Gifts of retirement plans — Your retirement plan may be worth more when donated to The Family Place than to your heirs.

  • Gifts of life insurance — Create a significant endowment for The Family Place without dipping into your capital assets.

To initiate a planned gift, contact mcbenavides@familyplace.org or call Mary Catherine Benavides at 214-443-7770 for more information.
