Our members and friends can support the Society to ensure long term preservation and education, and continue the legacy of our Pilgrim family.

Giving Options



You may make a bequest in your will or trust to The Society of Mayflower Descendants. Simply express in your estate planning that you would like to gift an amount of your assets to the Society. This will allow continued support of the Society in your name. (Please contact your estate planning attorney who can draft bequest language specific to your wishes.)

Beneficiary Designation Gifts

You can designate the New York Society of Mayflower Descendants as a beneficiary of a retirement, investment or bank account or on your life insurance policy. Consult your tax advisor as to the specific tax treatment, but gifts to not-for-profit organizations are generally tax deductible.

For more information or to notify the Society of your intention, please contact us.

In Honor

Anyone can make a gift to the New York Society of Mayflower Descendants either in honor of a member/non member still living or in memory of a member/non member who is deceased. You will have the option to have your gift mentioned in our newsletter and the family notified of your gift.
