SEATTLE -- A Seattle lawyer who died in September at the age of 98 left $188 million in a charitable trust to benefit Children's Hospital, the University of Washington Law School and the Salvation Army.
The Seattle Times reports Jack MacDonald saved money from working as an attorney for Veterans Affairs in Seattle and invested it along with money he inherited from his parents.
Forty percent of the trust's annual income or nearly $4 million a year will support pediatric research at the hospital, which his mother also supported. Thirty percent goes to the law school where MacDonald graduated in 1940. And the remaining 30 percent supports the Salvation Army in honor of MacDonald's father who wished to help men and women in need. His father owned MacDonald Meat Co.
