The Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Texas


Welcome to The Donation Page for the Texas Mayflower Society 2020 Fund.

Credit Cards Accepted

Our Texas Society would love to increase EDUCATION efforts across the State and we need your help to do that!

Consider this - one of our key purposes as a Society is to honor our Mayflower heritage and to enable future generations to know about and honor this heritage. One of our former members, Ms. Alice Lathrop of San Antonio, blessed our society some years ago with a major testamentary gift which enabled us to start giving scholarships to deserving young people. What a wonderful heritage she left!

At the 2016 Texas Mayflower Society meeting in San Antonio, we agreed to honor our ancestors at our 400th anniversary in 2020 by establishing a 2020 Mayflower Fund campaign. This campaign will attempt to raise enough funds between 2016 and 2020 to permit our Texas Society to offer every year thereafter:

  • Significantly increase our two Texas Mayflower scholarships for Mayflower descendants to attend college (one from $3,000 to $5,000 and one from $1,000 to $3,000).
  • Provide 'museum boxes' of Mayflower materials (books, games, pictures, lesson plans for classes on the Mayflower and Mayflower families for use by teachers in school districts). Here is what a 'museum box' looks like:

To enable us to provide the above items every year, we need to raise about $125,000 by 2020, beginning this year. These funds will supplement our existing Mayflower Fund to enable these plans. Why should you consider supporting this effort?

  • Honor your Mayflower heritage
  • Gifts may be given as gifts in honor of others or as memorial gifts if wished (to be published in our Newsletter)
  • Assist future generations to appreciate the significance of the Mayflower story and its importance in establishing our country.
Help us to make this goal to significantly enhance our Mayflower heritage footprint in Texas! Please send your check to Mike Nichols, our Treasurer, made out to the Texas Mayflower Society and marked for the 2020 Mayflower Fund. Your gift of any size to this fund from now until the end of 2020 will be gratefully received and recognized.
