Today I'm extremely excited to tell you about a philanthropic gift that my wife Laura and I are making:
We are giving $27.5 million to Stanford Hospital, for two purposes:
First, to significantly enhance and upgrade Stanford Hospital's current Emergency Department.
And second, to fund the creation of a new state-of-the-art emergency facility in the new hospital that Stanford will build -- assuming it is approved by the city of Palo Alto -- over the next several years.
As you can imagine, Laura and I are unbelievably excited by the opportunity to make this gift. In fact, we are so excited that I am going to tell you all about it at some length in this blog post!
For us, this gift is a great fit between a clear immediate need, and the prospect of helping to change the way the system that serves the need operates.
And we think the impact on Silicon Valley can be tremendous.
