It's been a good run for some Jesuit universities and their fundraising efforts.

Last week Gonzaga University announced a $55 million donation, which came not long after after Georgetown University announced a $50 million donation. Earlier in the year, in May, Seattle University reported donations totaling $42 million, and in the same month, Santa Clara University announced a $25 million donation. Four Jesuit schools, $172 million. A good run. May the Spirit help the leaders of these schools steward these gifts wisely!
