Gifts to the Stanford Diabetes Research Center may be designated as either expendable or endowed. An expendable fund means that the principal is used for the purpose designated by the donor. This type of giving is an excellent way for you to make an immediate impact in areas such as student financial aid and research.
An endowed fund is a permanent source of support. Such gifts are invested by the University to generate annual income, and a portion of the return on the fund is used to support the purpose chosen by the donor. The balance of interest and the appreciation remains in the fund so that the principal continues to grow and keep pace with inflation.
The permanence of an endowed fund, and your ability to name the fund after anyone you choose, makes this type of giving an excellent vehicle for honoring or memorializing someone important to you.
