  • Planned Giving

    Do you wish you could make a large gift to the Alliance, but day to day costs of living seem to keep you back? What if we told you there is a way for you to make a large contribution to the Alliance, to leave a legacy, and it would be easy? A planned gift is the way to make that larger gift to the Alliance. A planned gift is a gift that is legally provided for during a donor's lifetime. Two easy ways for you to make a planned gift to the Alliance is through your will and through a life insurance policy.

    Don't have a will? Did you know that 1/2 of all Americans die without having a will? Not only is it very important that you create a will if you don't have one, but this is an easy way to leave the planned gift to the Alliance.

    A life insurance policy is also an easy way to leave a legacy to the Alliance. By purchasing a life insurance policy for a small premium payment each month, you can leave the Alliance with a gift to fund the future of the organization.

    For more details or ways to give, contact Toni Brown, Executive Director, at 325-677-5321 or .

      Thanks to our generous donors, we have a beautiful courtyard in the middle of our building enjoyed by all. Those plants need watered and cared for every week. Also, the Alliance has been selected by a national organization to build a community playground. We will need volunteers for build day, November 5th, and then maintenance on the playground on an ongoing basis.

  • Get Connected and Reunited

    As the Alliance continues to provide relevant programs that empower women and children, we remain rooted in a rich history of community service – led by women in our community who made an impact.

    In partnership with United Supermarkets, the Alliance for Women and Children launched a program to reconnect our community advocates with each other and with the programs they developed to benefit the community.

    We’ll invite women to get together to reunite and share memories about their Alliance experiences, and connect over a common thread: a desire to empower the women and children in Abilene.

    Stay tuned for details. If you’d like to become REUNITED with the Alliance, contact info@afwconline.org.
