Denny Sanford Donates 100 Million to UCSD

Published: November 3, 2013

nuerons_t540Philanthropist Denny Sanford is donating $100 million to UC San Diego to speed up attempts to turn discoveries about human stem cells into drugs and therapies to treat everything from cancer and Alzheimer’s disease to spinal-cord injuries and weak hearts.

The gift from the South Dakota businessman, who has a home in La Jolla, is the second largest in campus history — exceeded only by the $110 million donation that Qualcomm cofounder Irwin Jacobs contributed to help the University of California San Diego become a power in engineering. Sanford’s donation is also among the 15 largest gifts nationwide this year, and it pushes him past $1 billion in lifetime giving.
