Ways to Give

Annual Support & Fellowship at Houston Christian

A broad variety of philanthropy programs are offered each year, each one providing opportunities for support and fellowship. The Mustang Fund (HC's Annual Fund drive), the Auction/Gala, the Mustang Classic Golf Tournament and the Give From the Heart Financial Aid Fund all provide a clear vision of HC's annual needs. These needs are in direct alignment with the mission and vision of the school and help deliver the education that grows and enhances our students and our community.


Capital Gifts

HC is actively engaged in raising funds to complete the school's campus master plan. The exemplary facilities at our school are evidence of the philanthropic support of many individuals, families and foundations. Capital giving provides donors the opportunity to extend their values and preserve their interest while meeting their needs. As in all areas of giving, donors' interests are central to this process.


Devoted and generous donors have established endowed funds, which provide permanent income to Houston Christian. These donors sustain our pursuit of excellence through gifts that literally give forever. Every endowment generates resources that support the long-term success and financial stability of HC.

Named endowments... 

  • Help students directly in the form of financial aid or merit scholarships
  • Support HC faculty and staff excellence
  • Support program excellence
  • Provide for campus enhancements

This endowment was created in honor and in memory of Alumni, Faculty and Staff, Board Members, and others who have been part of the school communities of Houston Christian and Northwest Academy. Established by gifts from the Northwest Academy Class of 1983, this endowment will provide need-based scholarships for the children of alumni, faculty and staff.


Planned Giving

Planned giving offers individuals and families a way of making charitable donations to the school through outright gifts, bequests, life income gifts and the creation of endowed funds. The Director of Development at Houston Christian High School is prepared to assist families interested in honoring our heritage as a part of their overall financial and estate planning.

Andrew Nager '04 - Houston Christian ignited in me a thrill for science that has since built my career and empowered me to help others. Like many former HC freshmen, I still remember Jim Kelley’s Intro to Biology class and learning the complexities of a human cell. I also remember struggling to memorize countless metabolic pathways and enzymes! It was moments like this in Kelley’s, Cathy Doxtater’s, and other HC classrooms that I developed the study skills and an excitement for science that would lead me through a B.S. in Biology and Chemistry (Vanderbilt), and a Ph.D. in Biophysics (MIT). Moreover, throughout my education I’ve seen how science can help others. While in Shonda Majors’s class I would hear how she advanced bone engineering techniques at Rice. Stories such as this inspired myself to led research efforts on antibiotics (at MIT) and pediatric brain tumors (as a research fellow at Stanford). Now, as a Senior Scientist at Pfizer, I design cancer medicines that direct a patient’s own immune system to kill a tumor. To me, there is nothing more special than helping a therapeutic enter the clinic and change a child’s prognosis from certain death to a full life. Thank you HC for setting the foundation of my career.
