We strive to help bring clarity to these needs and the ways in which you can support them. Now more than ever, they need your support. Houston Philanthropic Society is dedicated to bringing our community up-to-date tools and resources to promote strategic giving. We hope you will join us online on Facebook, Twitter and our LinkedIn Group to get frequent updates.
