Top Fundraising Priority
In 2008, the Humanities Center began a collaboration with the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI) to bring high profile international scholars to Stanford for short-term residencies. This pilot project has become a successful and flourishing Humanities Center program, the International Visitors Program, and the Center seeks funds to sustain this program through expendable gifts and permanent endowment. This is the Center’s highest fundraising priority.
A pledge of $20,000 a year for three years will name an international visitor each year during that period. This amount provides comprehensive support for the visitor’s residency.
Expendable funds are critical to sustaining core aspects of this vital program. Gifts of $10,000 will fund the stipend for one international visitor. Gifts of $5,000 will fund housing or travel expenses for one international visitor.
Gifts of any amount are gratefully accepted and provide essential
