The Power of A Plan

Many of our loyal alumni, parents, and friends choose to make a lifetime gift of assets, or an estate gift, or both, to Seattle University. Having a gift plan in place that fits with your overall financial goals can be a generous and tax-savvy way to provide for yourself and your family, while leaving a legacy with real impact at Seattle U.

We celebrate our nearly 600 Legacy Society members through special gatherings and personalized communication throughout the year. There is no minimum gift level and membership is for your lifetime. We need only know that you have made a gift plan for Seattle University and, if you wish, we can keep your membership in the Legacy Society anonymous. Legacy Society gifts help to build the university's endowment, thereby providing a strong financial future and a lasting impact in fulfilling the university's educational mission.
