Mission Statement: The Nancy Owens Memorial Foundation is organized to fund one or more qualified public charities that supports education, care and research to find a cure for breast cancer, while memorializing Nancy Owen's life, the values she lived by and the courage with which she faced her bout with breast cancer.
On September 7, 2001, Nancy Owens, a much loved and well-respected icon in the real estate industry, lost her courageous 20-year battle with breast cancer. One of Nancy's final wishes, if she had survived her battle with cancer, was to dedicate a large part of her life to the fight against breast cancer and the continued advancement of its research towards finding a cure. It is that very dream that lives on today, and from which the Nancy Owens Memorial Foundation was created.
Donations from previous Foundation events have been donated to the Houston Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the Lester and Sue Smith Breast Center at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM). Donations from the 2012 Foundation events will be donated to MD Anderson and the Lester and Sue Smith Breast Center at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM). The grand total of monies donated by the Foundation since its inception from 2002 through 2012 is over $1.1 Million!
The Foundation is proud to have received the Susan G. Komen Hope Award for Ambassadorship as well as the Houston Association of REALTORS® John E. Wolf Citizenship Cup Award for our continued commitment to supporting breast cancer research while creating a theme of “REALTORS® Making A Difference” in the fight against breast cancer.
The Nancy Owens Memorial Foundation is organized primarily to fund one or more qualified public charities that support education, care and research for breast cancer and has received its 501(c)(3) determination from the IRS.
