Bequests / Estate Planning

Donors make a powerful statement and have community impact when they name Seattle University’s School of Theology and Ministry as a beneficiary in their wills, living trusts or retirement plans.

Charitable Trusts and Gift Annuities

A charitable trust or a gift annuity can be established that provides income and tax benefits to the donor while providing current or future income. The gift will eventually support the School of Theology and Ministry.


Long-term funding can be given to the school through an endowment, which also can be specified for projects, educational funds and facilities.

Real Estate

A gift of land, business property or a house provides a beneficial tax advantage for donors.
