Mary LeFever is devoted to giving back to Delaware County where she can see how her favorite charities are having an impact. “I am grateful that I have three daughters who want to support my wishes and continue my legacy. With our donor-advised fund, our family can support other families who haven’t been blessed with the same opportunities as my family.”
