1906 Society Logo

In 1906, St. Agnes Academy opened its doors on Fannin Street at the urging of Sacred Heart parishioners to provide boarding and day school education for girls. With the blessing of the Bishop Nicholas A. Gallagher, the Dominican Sisters of Houston began a tradition of encouraging Academy women to develop intellectual curiosity, work for social justice and act with integrity and compassion. Today, this legacy continues with annual enrollment of over 900 students and more than 9,300 alumnae.

Members of the 1906 Society ensure this legacy will continue for generations to come. They affirm their commitment to the mission of St. Agnes through a future gift that is made as a bequest in their will and/or estate plan. There are many ways this can be done including; naming St. Agnes in their will or naming St. Agnes as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement plan. More options are available for your consideration by choosing the tab “Easy Gifts” or “More Ways to Give” above.

When a benefactor has made their decision to honor us with this most thoughtful philanthropic gift and they notify St. Agnes—either verbally or in writing—they will be welcomed into the 1906 Society. It is important for you to know that your membership can be public—shared in our honor roll of donors—or you can choose to remain anonymous. We honor your wishes.

Members of the 1906 Society receive notification of special events throughout the year including an invitation to our annual Guardian of Youth dinner each spring.
