About the Legacy Society
Seattle University Legacy Society
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.
To become a member of the Seattle University Legacy Society, simply let us know that you have made plans for a gift to SU, such as:
- A bequest by will or living trust
- Creation of a charitable gift annuity
- Creation of a charitable remainder trust
- Naming Seattle University as the beneficiary of an insurance policy, retirement account , bank account, donor advised fund, or commercial annuity
For membership in the Legacy Society, please contact us, or print, complete and return this Legacy Society Donor Survey. We would like to thank you for your generosity and make sure our records reflect how you would like your gift to be put to good use at Seattle University. If you are not sure which type of gift to SU can help you meet your planning goals for yourself and your loved ones, our dedicated staff in the Office of Gift Planning can help get you started. We are happy to meet with you and your advisors to talk more about your goals and how to create a meaningful legacy at Seattle University.
