$100 million gift launches Sanford Stem Cell Clinical Center
Date:11/4/2013

p>"This significant philanthropic gift from Mr. Sanford, combined with funding from CIRM and elsewhere, puts UC San Diego in a unique and advantageous position," noted David A. Brenner, MD, vice chancellor for Health Sciences and dean of the UC San Diego School of Medicine. "We are the only academic medical institution in the region with the scientists, physicians, facilities and clinical delivery system to bring the promise of stem cell therapies to fruition. No place in the world has a better chance of success."

Sanford's donation is the latest in a history of philanthropic largess. In his lifetime, he has given more than $1 billion, primarily to health- and children-related causes, often in his native state of South Dakota. In 2007, for example, he announced a $400 million gift to the Sioux Valley Hospitals and Health System for various health care and research initiatives.

In San Diego, Sanford and his foundation donated $20 million to the Burnham Institute for Medical Research in 2007 and issued a $50 million challenge grant three years later to the renamed Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute.

Sanford, 77, resides in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, with vacation homes in Arizona, California and Colorado. His family includes one brother, two sons, and two grandsons.
