Give to the Mayflower Society
The Mayflower Society depends on the generosity and support of our members and friends around the world to carry out our mission. We invite you to help us continue reaching out to share the principles of civil and religious liberty that the Mayflower Pilgrims brought to America and to tell their story — a legacy that means so much to us and to future generations.
You may wish to make an unrestricted gift to help the General Society with our most urgent projects, or you may choose to donate to a Special Project.
An unrestricted gift to our General Fund typically provides aid to our most urgent projects. In the past, our unrestricted funds have contributed to additional Mayflower Lineage Match staff and matching grant costs for our Feasibility Study of the Mayflower Society campus. Giving an unrestricted gift and supporting our operating facilities truly provides the foundation our Society needs to uphold our mission and values.
Mayflower Society Special Projects
Gifts toward the Mayflower Society House help preserve, protect and interpret The Mayflower Society House property, the Research Library, its surrounding gardens and a sizeable collection of decorative arts, antiques and artifacts of significance not only relating to the Pilgrims, but to the historic town of Plymouth.
The Mayflower Society Scholarship Program annually offers one of each: $6000, $4000, $3000 and $2000 scholarships to graduating high school seniors who are Mayflower descendants. A gift toward the scholarship program supports our ability to provide aid to younger descendants who will be attending a four-year college or university or two-year community college.
A gift to our Silver Books further supports the research and publication of authoritative biographical, genealogical and historical information relating to the Pilgrims and their descendants by professional genealogists and historians for our acclaimed publications.
Gifts toward the genealogical research library help fund our research and expand our resources. It benefits the collection and maintenance of research materials in our library relating to the history, culture and genealogy of the Pilgrims and their descendants.
