sharing love with others.

Kelly was a young successful business woman who loved her family and friends and lived life to the very fullest.  She worked very hard at everything she did to make sure her life and the lives of those around her were as good as they could be. The Kelly Foundation seeks to emulate those values by helping and rewarding people and organizations with similar values.  Kelly was a great contributor to her community and society and by helping and supporting those who seek to better their lives, communities, and society we will honor and remember the name and spirit of Kelly Ann Kramer.
