Individuals, groups and business donations—financial and otherwise—significantly boost the ability of the Children’s Advocacy Center to fulfill its mission. These contributions—along with special event proceeds and grants—drive the scope, quality and relevance of the Center beyond what might be possible with the federal, state and local government funding.
Your donation of time and talent is of incalculable worth to the Center. Your engagement enables the Center to stretch its human “capital” and optimize its program offerings. Such donations literally make the Center “work” better and also demonstrate measurably the value that our citizens place on the work of the Center. See VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES below.
Your donations of cash and goods—such as quilts and toys for children and Center supplies—allow CAC to provide supplementary resources to clients and to fund our educational outreach to the community. Please see the “CAC Wish List” of everyday and seasonal items that will help stretch CAC resources.
As a Center event, program or facility sponsor, your backing not only gives the Center a financial boost toward fulfilling its mission but it also announces to the public your commitment to it and to the welfare of the community. For further information regarding any form of donation, please contact the Center’s Executive Director Meagan Webb at 512-321-6161, or at [email protected]

Throughout the year, the Center provides you an opportunity to honor someone dear to you at an important time in their life—a birthday, anniversary, significant life event or accomplishment, a holiday remembrance—or as a memorial to a family member, friend or associate. Your donation to the Center in their name makes the honoree part of a mission that has transformed so many lives and added measurably to the quality of life in our community. The Center will send an acknowledgment of your gift to the honoree or, in the case of a memorial, to the person’s family or other designee.
Through a charitable bequest in your will or similar planned giving, you can ensure that the Center will be able to sustain its work into the future. If you wish to include the Center in your estate plan, consult with your attorney to establish the method and inform the Center that your plan is in place, complete a short form of description and authorize us to list you on CAC’s Sustaining Legacies honor roll.
The Children’s Advocacy Center is a qualified 501(c)(3) charitable organization registered with the State of Texas and the United States Internal Revenue Service. Gifts to the Center are tax deductible, to the extent permitted by IRS law and regulations. Donors will be provided receipts for their cash donations and, where possible, for “in kind” donations.
