Back in February, we reflected on the spirit of philanthropy – that only through helping one another and uniting our efforts, can we truly make a difference in the world, and in turn, create a better tomorrow for our children. One of the primary reasons people engage in philanthropy is the desire to make an impact on someone’s life. In 2012, The Plymouth Harbor Foundation was founded to ensure the appropriate stewardship of funds contributed to Plymouth Harbor, provide funding for innovative programs and services, and guarantee that these gifts are able to make that desired impact.
This year, with the help of The Foundation’s 2014 Impact Report, we wanted to share with you the far-reaching impact that your gifts have made, not only within the Plymouth Harbor community, but also the greater Sarasota community. The report includes heartwarming stories of families that overcame overwhelming obstacles, residents and donors that contributed unbelievably generous gifts, countless hours of volunteer service, and much more.
Here are a few highlights from the 2014 report:
- Over $541,000 was donated in gifts to The Foundation.
- Residents and employees of Plymouth Harbor contributed 10,486 hours of volunteer services to nearly 70 different organizations in the Sarasota area.
- 14 individuals became members of The MacNeil Society (those who included a gift to The Foundation in their estate through a will, gift annuity agreement, trust arrangement, life insurance, or retirement plan).
