WIH Receives Important Donation

October 20, 2014


Yvonne Victery recently made a very significant donation to the Women’s Institute of Houston. A long-time participant at the Institute, Yvonne wished to express her appreciation for the many classes she has taken and to honor literature professor Dr. Terrance Doody, who has been part of the faculty for 30 years (for information about Dr. Doody, click here).

According to Alida Webb, Executive Director of WIH, few people realize that the WIH is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. “Unlike most nonprofits, we receive no funds from any local, state, or federal agency.” says Webb.

Therefore, tax-deductible contributions such as Yvonne’s and those of other individuals and corporations- large or small- are not only appreciated but represent a necessary source of funding for WIH programs. Gifts like these help the WIH carry on the tradition of offering a wide variety of classes in the humanities and liberal arts to the Houston community of adult learners so that WIH can always be the place “where excellence in education continues.”
