The Deering Estate Foundation

Preserving the Legacy

ALL FUNDS CONVERGE ON A SINGLE GOAL – to ensure in perpetuity the Deering Estate’s viability as a center for preservation, education, and recreation

To fulfill its mission, The Deering Estate Foundation relies on annual membership dues and contributions from individuals, foundations and corporations that value the preservation of the Estate’s rich and storied history, the conservation of its diverse and expansive native habitats and access to unique cultural, educational and recreational experiences it offers.
