Make a Legacy Gift to United Through Reading

Your support of United Through Reading (UTR) has made a profound impact on military families in your lifetime and you can continue your legacy with a gift in your will or estate plans that will allow military mothers, fathers, and children to sustain bonds and foster literacy for years to come.

Your charitable gift to UTR is a personal expression of your goals and values. Whatever the size or form of your gift, UTR will work with you and your financial advisers to prepare a planned giving strategy that reflects your interests and objectives.

Alex G. Kelley - Founding Member, Alex G. Kelley Planned Giving Society

Alex believed that giving made a difference in the world, and he personally supported numerous charities across a wide range of causes. But as a founding board member of UTR, Alex had a special passion for the UTR mission, supporting the organization for nearly 30 years through volunteering and financial contributions.

In honor of Alex’s service, support, and exceptionally generous planned gift, UTR has established the Alex G. Kelley Planned Giving Society. The Society invites you to remember UTR in your estate plans, and like Alex, consider a gift that continues after your lifetime.

Alex was intentional about this gift to UTR as he prepared for the final chapter of life. He sought to inspire others, by both making a difference to a cause most dear to him and also setting an example with his stewardship of UTR. With the support of his son, Jay, daughter-in-law, Carrie, and his grandchildren, Quade and Sloane, UTR established the Society to galvanize support of the UTR mission: keeping military families connected through the reading aloud experience, creating a bridge across thousands of miles that often separate them.
