Ways to Give

Thank you for considering a gift to Incarnate Word Academy. 

Gifts to the Incarnate Word Academy help our school continue a 145-year tradition of providing young women in the Houston area the education and values to live for others and Jesus, the Incarnate Word.  Knowing this, we cherish every gift at IWA and make sure that the students see the fruits of each of those gifts.

The IWA Annual Fund

A gift to the Incarnate Word Academy Annual Fund is the most important gift we ask of our IWA community. Gifts of all sizes are welcomed and appreciated. An important benefit of supporting the Incarnate Word Academy Annual Fund is that all funds are unrestricted resources that can be used in the areas with the greatest need.

Scholarship Fund

Scholarships are a direct investment in our students' lives and their future dreams. A gift to our scholarship program is a very personal and rewarding way to reach out to a deserving young woman, offering her excellent education opportunities at IWA, as well as deepening her faith and values.

Planned Giving

There are many ways to support Incarnate Word Academy in addition to making an outright gift. These options, collectively known as planned gifts, allow you to provide a much larger gift than you had previously considered - resulting in a partnership with great meaning to you and strong future benefit to the Academy.

Gifts in Memoriam

Please consider leaving a gift in memory of a loved one. This a wonderful tribute and opportunity to acknowledge someone special in your life who has passed away. When memorial gifts are received, the Advancement Office notifies the next of kin and credits the gift appropriately. The gifts are also recognized in Incarnate Word Academy's Annual Report.
