+ Gifts in kind

Gifts in kind, also referred to as in-kind donations, is a kind of charitable giving in which, instead of giving money to buy needed goods and services, the goods and services themselves are given. Examples of in-kind gift needs include but not limited to; building materials for Mermaid Society parade float, climate controlled 10 x 10 storage unit, mermaid art supplies for craft making, portable sensory table, vehicle wrap for automobile, banners, signage, printing, computer laptop and office supplies. Visa and store gift cards to Sam’s, Walmart, Hobby Lobby, and Michaels. Services, such as graphic design, photography, videography, computer technical support, construction of parade float and event props, may also be counted as in-kind gifts.

+ Underwriting

This is funding donated for the support of a project, program, event, initiative, activity or administrative costs. Examples of underwriting needs include but not limited to; office rent, insurance, cell phone, storage unit, mascot appearances, Volunteer Appreciation celebration, SPLASH Patch picnic, Mermaid Roundup, educational materials, youth initiative programming, cultural partnership programing.

+ 3rd Party Events

Third party events are planned and executed by an outside organization or individual with the proceeds benefiting Mermaid Society SMTX. These events are an integral part of raising funds for our Youth Programming and community outreach. Third party events can be something as simple as a bake sale or jeans day at your school or business or a major event like a golf tournament or wine walk. If you or your organization are interested in planning or hosting a third-party event please contact us at 512-825-2819.

 
 
I am excited about the formation of the Mermaid Society in San Marcos as it promises to keep the legacy of Aquarena Springs alive, provide a meaningful connection between art and the environment, and help strengthen the community’s commitment to be good stewards of the river.
