Donation Information

The Plymouth Education Foundation has established several funds whereby district stakeholders are able to make donations to specific areas of interest in support of students of the Plymouth School District. Donors may make a donation to one or more of the funds, or may simply contribute to the Foundation’s general fund, allowing resources to be provided to the greatest area of need.

 

Donation Circles of Giving and Recognition Levels

Donor Circles of Giving are listed below. Please refer to the Donor Circles of Giving Recognition Form for recognition benefits.

Due to the limited resources of the Foundation, only donations at the Legacy level are eligible for donor requested restrictions or conditions regarding protection of principal. Upon offer, each donation will be carefully evaluated to determine whether the board of directors can meet the donor’s wishes.

Legacy
Initial one-time donations in the amount of $25,000 or greater and additional donations thereafter, afford the donor the ability to direct the protection of principal, should they so desire, along with directing the specific application of the earnings on said principal. Legacy donors will be afforded the opportunity to be recognized by special awards in their name. In addition, Legacy donors will be permanently recognized at the highest level of recognition on the Foundation’s web site.

Visionary
Initial donations in the amount of $10,000 or greater but less than $25,000 will be distributed according to the donor’s wishes, provided the Foundation’s board of directors deems the criteria to be executable given the time and resources required to manage and execute such awards. Visionary donors will be afforded the opportunity to be recognized by special awards in their name. At such time that a donor's cumulative donations reach the Legacy level, the donor will be recognized as a Legacy donor upon written request.

Innovator and Exemplar
Innovator ($5,000-$9,999) and Exemplar ($2,500-$4,999) donors will be afforded the ability to be recognized through the granting of specific awards in the donor’s name. Donations in the Innovator and Exemplar categories will be distributed according to the donor’s reasonable wishes, provided the Foundation’s board of directors deems the criteria to be executable given the time and resources required to manage and execute such awards. At such time that a donor's cumulative donations reach the Legacy level, the donor will be recognized as a Legacy donor upon written request.

Scholar, Leader, Mentor and Friend
Scholar ($1,000-$2,499), Leader ($500-$999), Mentor ($100-$499), and Friend (less than $100) donors will be will be recognized for their contribution and such amounts donated will be used to further the mission of the Foundation, in such manner as directed by the board of directors in conjunction with the specific fund designated by the donor.
