A gift of long-term appreciated securities, either publicly traded or from a closely-held company, may provide you with greater tax advantages than a gift of cash. You may deduct the current fair market value as a charitable gift and completely avoid any capital gains tax on the appreciation. Your broker will need to compete the transfer.
For those who are considering making a year-end charitable contribution to a charity, planning your giving to the Plymouth Education Foundation may align with your passions and maximize your contribution providing a tax break. Donations to the Plymouth Education Foundation benefit students, who are our future leaders, and is also an excellent way to make a long-term investment in the future of our community.

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.
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.
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.
