Kohler-Andrae gets grant

The Friends of Wisconsin State Parks Board of Directors and Services and Membership Committee recently announced that the Friends of Kohler- Andrae State Park were awarded a grant in the amount of $1,000.

The Naturalist Grant Program is funded by revenue received from the Natural Resources Foundation VISA Platinum Credit Card. A portion of each purchase made with the card comes back to the Friends of Wisconsin State Parks at the end of the year.

The purpose of the Affinity Card Naturalist Grant program is to provide funding for seasonal interpretive and nature education programs.

A condition of the grant requires a $1,000 match from the Friends of Kohler-Andrae. The $1,000 award was used to pay for additional interpretive programs throughout the 2014 season as well as for the purchase of items necessary to continue to offer presentations at Sanderling Nature Center.

Consider year-end gift to PEF

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 in 2014. 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.

For over 25 years, the Plymouth Education Foundation, which is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, has been dedicated to providing financial support to enhance the educational experience for students in the Plymouth School District helping to prepare every student to reach their highest potential and be excited about his or her future.

The Plymouth Education Foundation was established to benefit Plymouth students with enriching opportunities including programs, activities, lecturers, awards, and scholarships; and capital projects not covered by the school district’s budget.

Over the past year, the Plymouth Education Foundation led a successful capital campaign to build the Food Science and Agriculture Center at Plymouth High School; awarded approximately $30,000 in scholarships to 20 PHS graduating seniors enabling them to pursue a higher education; supported a new program called the Freshman Summer Academy assisting students with the transition from middle school to high school; and received a generous donation to purchase new posture chairs for the PHS Choir Room.

If you are 70½ or older and have a traditional IRA you are required to take minimum distributions each year. In prior years, tax laws allowed you to transfer funds directly from your IRA to certain charitable organizations. These transfers would satisfy your required minimum distributions as well as provide you with an above the line deduction for the charitable contribution. Currently, the tax law does not contain this enhanced provision for 2014, but there has been significant talk about extending this provision to 2014 and maybe even permanently. Consulting with your tax advisor regarding IRA distribution or charitable contribution transactions may help you to determine the best way for you to make a donation to the Plymouth Education Foundation.

Your generosity will benefit Plymouth students and our community for years to come. Together, we will continue to recognize and award innovation, leadership, and excellence in our schools preparing students to be college, technical school, and career ready.

Your year-end gift or charitable contribution can be made online at or you can complete the online donation form and mail it along with your donation to: Plymouth Education Foundation, Attn: Anne Troka, Executive Director, 125 Highland Ave., Plymouth 53073. If you have any questions, please call Anne Troka directly at 892-2661 ext. 1008.

All gifts donated to the Foundation are distributed according to the donors’ wishes and intentions. Each donation made to the Foundation can be designated toward a specific project and is placed into a special fund that is used specifically for the project. Please see the Foundation online donation form for designation options as well as visit the Foundation web site to see a complete list of current donors to the Foundation’s Endowment and/or Capital Campaign.
