Ryan Leong (’05)

Spokane, Wash.

Keeping Connected

Ryan credits the Gonzaga alumni network with inspiring and helping him to pursue the career field he now enjoys. He gives back to help share those opportunities with others.   

“Young alumni, in particular, are an important resource for current students, in that they can connect them to the larger Gonzaga network. Any contribution of time or money by young alumni is a critical investment to keep the alumni network strong for future Gonzaga students.”  - Ryan Leong

Adrienne Salley (’10)

Seattle, Wash.

Building Confidence

Adrienne looks back on her Gonzaga experience as a source of personal strength.  

“Gonzaga helped me gain the confidence to go out into the world and excel. I love everything about this school and I want to ensure future students are able to be exposed to the opportunities Gonzaga can open up for them. Go Zags!” – Adrienne Salley




Clark

Al and Sue Clark

Pasadena, Calif.

Sustaining the Gonzaga Experience

The Clarks say the support and encouragement of Gonzaga’s faculty has challenged their daughter, Janie, to grow emotionally and intellectually. Ensuring other students have the same opportunity has inspired them to give back.

"Our gifts are fairly modest. Although individually they probably won’t accomplish much, we are confident, collectively with others, they will help in sustaining the unique university experience Gonzaga provides for current and future students." - Sue Clark



Cutler

Jay and Karen Cutler

Palos Verdes Estates, Calif.

Paying it forward

The Cutlers did not want money to be the deciding factor for their son, Sam, who wanted nothing more than to attend Gonzaga. Luckily, scholarships made Sam’s dream come true. Now, the Cutlers are helping other students’ realize their dreams.

"We hope our gift, along with gifts from others, will provide the opportunity for a student who is less fortunate to attend Gonzaga, which we believe to be a top platform for higher education." - Jay Cutler



French

Blaine ('93, '02) and Pamela French

Spokane, Wash.

Gonzaga memories

Blaine’s favorite memory from his days on campus involved running as Spike, the University’s mascot, during Bloomsday.

"My experiences at Gonzaga had, and are continuing to have, a very positive effect on me and my family’s lives. Because of this, when structuring our philanthropic giving, Gonzaga was a clear leader." - Blaine French



McGann

Jim and Mary Kay McGann

Highlands Ranch, Colo.

Honoring a loved one

Gonzaga was always a special place for their son, Jimmy. When he died following an inspiring battle with cancer, the McGanns established an endowed scholarship in their son’s name benefitting students from Regis Jesuit High School.

"Gonzaga was the only place he ever wanted to be. He was only here a year, but he made great friends and he loved it — he just loved it." - Mary Kay McGann
