With a mixture of sadness and appreciation, the Plymouth Harbor Foundation Board of Trustees says farewell to Phil Starr as he reaches the end of his Board term. As one of the charter resident members of the board, Phil has made a huge impact on the success of the foundation and its initiatives.

Phil joined the board in November of 2013 as one of the three resident members. His passion for improving life at Plymouth Harbor through engaged philanthropy has been the pinnacle of his leadership. He and his wife Barry together have chaired two successful capital campaigns — the rejuvenation of Pilgrim Hall and, most recently, the campaign for the memory care premier programming.

Phil leads with his heart, giving generously of his time and his financial resources to improve Plymouth Harbor. Under his leadership, Plymouth Harbor received the largest donation in its history from a foundation outside of the state of Florida — the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation, from the Martha Jane Phillips Starr Field of Interest Fund.

We are extremely grateful for Phil’s leadership and service on the Foundation Board. While he will not be in an official capacity, we know that he will remain a friend and advisor to the Foundation going forward. Thank you, Phil Starr, for your exemplary service!
