Giving Back through a Gift by Will
Lydia Gonzales immigrated from the Philippines as a young woman and achieved her dream of pursuing a graduate degree at Seattle University. She has many fond memories of the Jesuits and her time at Seattle University.
Lydia: "Fr. McGoldrick was so nice. When you had a problem you could just go and talk to him and he'd say 'Don't worry, we'll do something about it.'"
She decided to create a legacy to provide future support to continue the university's mission and help future students by creating an endowed scholarship fund with a gift by will.
Lydia: "Seattle University is where I got my degree, and they helped me. Now that I can help, why not?"
