Legacy Society

The Legacy Society consists of members who have included Seattle University’s School of Theology and Ministry in their estate plans, either through a will, a trust, a gift annuity, a life insurance policy, or a gift from a retirement plan.

The word Legacy comes from the Latin word Legatus from Roman times, referring ambassador who was sent to the provinces to bring greetings, good news and gifts. In the spirit of the Legatus, we encourage alumni and friends to become School of Theology and Ministry’s ambassadors by leaving their legacy to the next generation of School of Theology and Ministry students.
