ALL DONATIONS TO THE DEERING ESTATE FOUNDATION ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE TO THE EXTENT PROVIDED BY LAW


Time has a way of standing still during a crisis. We are up front and center with fear and anxiety, seek explanations, and want to take action. We here at the Deering Estate Foundation want to take that action by offering a bit of hope and a glimpse of the beauty that waits once the pandemic is behind us and the estate is once again open. We look forward to your visit to see the manatees in the boat basin, to walk the nature trails within the estate, to spend time in the historic houses, to take in an art exhibit, to pack and enjoy a picnic on the bay, to sign up for a kayaking trip, to participate in an educational program… and so much more!

As your membership is due for renewal or might have expired, and considering current circumstances, we are offering a 25% discount on renewals and new memberships and will extend these memberships by three months.
