Dear Friends of Gonzaga,
I remember vividly my first day as a Gonzaga student. With class schedule in hand, I walked down the corridor of the Main Building (now, Dooley Hall), completely unsure where I was to go. A Jesuit approached me and asked if I “needed help?” I responded by explaining that I was “looking for my homeroom.” Looking at my schedule, he pointed out that I was in the right building, but the wrong floor. Now, as I reflect on that first day, it offers the right descriptive metaphor for what Gonzaga did for me, and what Gonzaga seeks to do for each and every student . . . to help her students find their way.
Today, I am aware of the seeds planted during my student days here on Eye Street, and how they subsequently grounded and directed me into my future. I will be forever grateful for ALL that Gonzaga has given to me and my entire family.
If your Gonzaga experience has directed you (or, your son) into your (his) future and has been a gift to you and your family, I hope you will consider becoming a member of the Forever Gonzaga Society by making a legacy gift for future generations of Gonzaga students.
This website offers explanations of the most commonly used methods used for estate planning and giving. You can contact your financial professional or, if you prefer, contact Gonzaga and our team of professionals who will help you begin the process.
If you have already included Gonzaga in your estate plans, allow me to offer Gonzaga’s sincerest gratitude! Further, I ask that you inform us of your plans so that we can include you in the Forever Gonzaga Society listing in our annual Honor Roll of Benefactors.
For two hundred years Gonzaga has helped young men on discover their way and their purpose before God. That is our sacred mission. May it continue and thrive for the next two hundred years.
Sincerely, with every best wish,
Rev. Joseph E. Lingan, S.J. ‘75
