Economic Development is quality of life. The Foundation takes an ad valorum approach to the projects we undertake. This means we leverage our staff and other resources to add value to proven success. In some cases we work with our partners to bring something new to our communities, such as beginning the Plymouth Poet Laureate program. There is already an undercurrent of support for the arts. A Poet Laureate certainly adds value to the community. Similarly, we are proud supporters of myriad cultural and community events, such as Waterfront Festival and Winterfest. If you have an idea for a project you would like to discuss with the Foundation, please contact Stephen Cole.
