In 1999, Rodger Haley came to The Foundation to plan a future gift through his Last Will and Testament. It was his wish to establish a fund to support the Utica Public Library and to inspire others to support it. As long as the Library remained a public institution, he wanted the fund to enhance or improve the Library’s operations. His vision was accomplished following his death in April of 2010. Through his foresight, an enduring family legacy was created that will promote literacy and learning for generations to come.
