Leigh Alogna Duff ’69 makes a legacy gift for her 50th reunion

When Leigh Alogna Duff ’69 celebrated her 50th Reunion in 2019, she and her husband William knew they wanted to make a special gift to Regis. Through the Catherine Burke Society, they made an impactful gift that will leave a legacy for decades to come.

“I was inspired by a fellow classmate, Kathleen O’Hare, to make a commitment by including a provision in my will for a gift to establish a scholarship fund,” says Duff. “The gift is in honor of Sister Genevieve Marie, my husband William’s grand-aunt, who served as president of Regis College from 1932 to 1941.” Sister Genevieve Marie was a source of inspiration to William and his family, coming from a humble background and reaching one of the highest levels in her profession. She always stressed the importance of a Catholic education, and this core value still resonates with Leigh and William to this day.

“We support Regis’ longstanding commitment to a collective community—“we” versus “me” and serving our dear neighbors,” explains Duff as to why they felt so strongly to make the long-term commitment to Regis. “Under President Toni Hays and her team, Regis is making the strategic moves necessary for its future success.”
