Ways to Give
Breakthroughs in understanding, detecting, and curing disease begin with research and education. By establishing an endowed fund, you enable ongoing, dependable financial support to advance biomedical discoveries, innovations in patient care, and training of future leaders in medicine for generations to come.
Generosity comes in many forms, and it's often the best way for you to support important causes that matter the most to you in your life. When you give to Stanford University School of Medicine or Stanford Health Care, you help us make a difference.

By spreading payments over a period of time—typically not more than five years—pledges allow donors to make larger commitments and fulfill them at a comfortable pace.
