Travis & Margaret Storey Give First Million-Dollar Legacy Gift

June 24, 2015

Travis and Margaret have committed more than the past two decades of their lives to creating better lives for all in Northeast Florida, and now they have committed to do so in perpetuity.

“Margaret and I decided that the very best way that we could make a meaningful difference forever is to make a legacy commitment to United Way’s endowment so they can continue the great work they are doing to improve the quality of life in our city for many years to come,” said Travis.

Travis and Margaret Storey have taken the next step in their commitment to United Way's mission by planning a million-dollar legacy gift.

Travis has impacted nearly every area of volunteer leadership with United Way, from chairing the Board of Trustees, the Tocqueville Society, and the Finance and Audit Committees to serving on the Community Impact Council. He is currently leading the Legacy Giving Council. Margaret served on the Success By 6 Council, assisting in developing United Way’s initiative to provide access to quality early learning. The Storeys have also been steadfast members of the Tocqueville Society, and their leadership, generosity and service has been integral to United Way’s success for many years.

Through the generosity of Margaret and Travis, United Way of Northeast Florida is grateful to share that we have received the first million dollar planned gift in the history of our organization. With this gift, we are pleased to announce that the Storeys become the inaugural Summit Level donors in the Legacy Giving Society, as well our first members of the United Way Worldwide Million Dollar Legacy Circle.

“Margaret and I feel there’s no better way to make a lasting gift to the community than through United Way,” said Storey.

We are privileged to be beneficiaries of such a generous commitment from such remarkable stewards of our community. This step represents one of the most profound commitments one can make to Northeast Florida, and we are grateful for the lives it will improve in perpetuity.
