Governor General’s 1620 Club

The Governor General’s 1620 Club Membership is a designation given to The Mayflower Society’s donors who give at the level of $1,620 or more per year. These donations are designated for special projects that would not otherwise be supported. 

1620 Club donors receive an exclusive 1620 Club pin, and an invitation for two to the Governor General’s annual tour, followed by the 1620 Club Banquet.  

1620 Club Donations Make a Difference

Past and Future Objectives Funded by 1620 Club Donations:

  • Funding for new researchers for the Silver Books.
  • An ADA-compliant restroom for visitors with disabilities to the Mayflower Society House
  • A new membership database to streamline processing in the Plymouth office.
  • Removal of the historic balustrade on the Mayflower Society House in Plymouth. (Without this timely action, the winter storms of 2018 would have destroyed the roof and significantly damaged our headquarters.)
  • Exterior painting of the Mayflower Society House.
  • 2021: Website replacement
  • 2022: Mayflower Society House repairs
  • 2023: Technology and system improvements

2022/23 Governor General’s 1620 Club Donations

Donations made to the Governor General’s 1620 Club will be designated toward enhancing technology improvements for the organization.

These improvements are designed to make our processes more efficient and effective throughout the organization – for applicants, Member Societies, our support staff in Plymouth and The Mayflower Society overall.

Your donation to the 1620 Club will make these needed improvements possible.

Governor General's 1620 Club: Annual Tour

 

The 2022 General Board of Assistants Meeting was held in Bloomington, Minnesota in September. Here are some pictures from the meeting and the Governor General’s 1620 Club banquet after the meeting.

The 2021 General Board of Assistants meeting was held in September in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Over the weekend members of the Governor General’s 1620 Club were taken on an exciting tour of the New Bedford Whaling Museum.

In September 2019 at the General Board of Assistants meeting in Denver, Colorado, members of the Governor General’s 1620 Club were treated to a sneak peak of the Bradford Statue during a visit to artist’s Dee Clements’ studio, followed by a tour of the foundry where the statue was to be bronzed.
