Stanford CIO Rob Wallace on Endowment Purpose

“The endowment is actually a collection of more than 7,000 individual gifts from donors. These generous gifts are meant to support in perpetuity a wide range of university programs, including teaching and research, financial aid, facilities maintenance, athletics and many more.

These programs enable the students and faculty of Stanford to weave a rich tapestry of scholarship and achievement.

You can view the endowment as one of the most important threads that holds that tapestry together. The stronger the thread, the brighter and more ambitious Stanford’s tapestry can be.”

Sounds poetic.
