Donate to Houston Employee Relief Organization, HERO

100 percent of the money, plus earnings, donated to HERO will benefit dependent spouses and children of municipal employees killed at work.

Unencumbered donations to HERO will primarily be used for the Survivor’s Fund; however, a portion of those funds may be used to publicize HERO's goals.

Members of the HERO Board of Directors are volunteers from the Houston Business Sector and the City of Houston. Board members receive no compensation for their time and expenses.
