The Houston Texans Foundation is delighted to provide support to a wide range of charities and community organizations each year in an effort to help raise funds for worthwhile causes through merchandise donations.
Depending on the nature and reach of the event, in-kind donations of team memorabilia may include photos, pennants, team apparel, footballs and other merchandise. The Texans assist more than 400 organizations annually in this manner. The following procedures and guidelines are designed to assist you with your donation request (NOTE: Texans' game tickets are not available for donations due to limited availability and other restrictions).
We will notify organizations if their donation request will be granted. It is highly recommended that your event not be centered on the anticipation of a donation from the Houston Texans, but a donation should be considered as a complimentary element to your event.
Many requests may not be fulfilled due to the overwhelming volume of requests we receive weekly.
- All donation requests must be submitted online. Written or phone requests are not accepted.
- The online donation form must be filled out completely in order for your organization's request to be considered.
- Please allow 6 (six) weeks processing time for donations.
- Charitable contributions will only be granted to organizations with 501(c) (3) status. No third party requests. The tax exempt ID number must be correct on the online form.
- Organizations may only submit one request per year.
- Due to the large volume of requests we receive, the Houston Texans have established a statewide-only policy for donations of Texans memorabilia with priority to Houston, Central and South Texas. Out of state requests will not be fulfilled.
- Requests must include a return shipping label or FedEx Third party billing information to be mailed out. If not, solicitor must arrange for pick up on a designated Wednesday between 2:00-5:00PM.
- No items will be sent to a P.O. Box address.
Again, due to the large volume of requests we receive, our response to any particular donation request is at our sole discretion. Thank you for your interest in the Houston Texans Foundation. We wish you much success with your event.
