Alumni Support iSchool Through IRA

Mary and FrankMary (Class of ’65) and Frank (Class of ’66) Montgomery decided to support the Information School with a gift from their IRA to help more students experience the wonderful things they shared at the University of Washington. Today, MLIS students are benefiting from the Montgomerys’ gift, made in memory of Mary’s sister, Susan, a children’s librarian and later a law librarian.

“Using our IRA was a wonderful way to make a contribution and have a far greater impact than we thought possible,” says Frank.

“Hearing from the student made it clear how important private support is these days,” says Mary.
