Need a little more information? We got you. Below are answers to some frequently asked questions. Also, if you don’t find your answer here, contact the SBAA president, Justin Huelman, or Stanford’s development office, via ____________.

Q: Can you explain again exactly how committed (promise, but not paid) donations can still count towards the conversion of our donated funds into a fully endowed fellowship position?

Once Stanford as received 1/3 of all required commitments they will in good faith create a new endowment position on behalf of the alumni. In essence, Stanford is fronting us some cash while the checks roll in for another year or two. Even though the endowment gets converted early, we will still need to finish providing the full committed amount.

Q: What happens if we don’t raise enough money to convert the alumni fund to an endowment?

Q: I am not currently able to donate cash however, I do have stock; can I donate that?

Q: What is going to be the name of this Alumni funded fellowship?

A: The name has not yet been finalized but the working name is the Biodesign Alumni Legacy Fellowship.

Q: I am not used to making charitable gifts of this amount, are there tax implications I should be aware of?


Q: I think my employer matches charitable gifts, how does that work?
