We are very happy to announce our new legacy society at Plymouth Harbor, The MacNeil Society.  The MacNeil Society recognizes people who have thoughtfully included a gift to The Plymouth Harbor Foundation in their estate through a bequest, gift annuity agreement, trust arrangements, life insurance, or retirement plan.  When you name The Plymouth Harbor Foundation in your estate plans you have, in essence, declared to your family and friends that you truly believe in Plymouth Harbor’s mission and commit to the vision for its future.
