Ways to Give

Something Nice

There are many ways you can help us fulfill our mission, whether it be financial support or volunteering your time. Gifts can be General or earmarked for special purposes, such as Rebuild Mercer, an on-going campaign to secure the adjacent acreage located on higher, drier ground and to help with the recovery costs to The Mercer Society and Mercer Botanic Gardens from Hurricane Harvey and, for many other purposes.

Our mission to be the philanthropic partner of Mercer Botanic Gardens would not be possible without our members, donors and volunteers.

The Mercer Society is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization.  Contributions to The Mercer Society are fully tax-deductible.
