Giving to CASBS

Your gift ensures the prestigious CASBS fellowship program continues to attract the world’s best researchers in the social and behavioral sciences. Gifts can also support our groundbreaking workshops, discussions, and research projects.

Tackling big ideas and big problems requires substantial investment. By supporting CASBS you help generate research that makes a difference.

The Fellows' Fellowship Fund
Annual Giving

Annual gifts from past fellows, visiting scholars, and friends support the work of the Center. Scholars who have benefited from the opportunities afforded by time spent at CASBS—broadening of perspectives, reassessment of intellectual positions, and consideration of alternative methods and views through sustained interaction with others—have generously given back to CASBS through the annual fund.

To attract the very best fellows and respond to new and ever more complex issues, the Center needs to consistently increase annual support. Gifts made to CASBS stay with the Center and are spent exclusively on our fellows and programs.

In Memory of Douglass North

Douglass North (1920-2015), a CASBS fellow in 1987-88 and winner of the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences in 1993, was for decades his discipline's preeminent scholar of institutions. His work on economic history, and his ideas about economic development continue to influence intellectual discourse across the social sciences.

North honored CASBS with a bequest. The Center seeks to augment the bequest and, in return, honor him by endowing a study in his name. If you so choose, there are two options for making a gift in memory of Douglass North:

- Send a check, payable to Stanford University, to CASBS with an accompanying note specifying that the gift is in memory of Douglass North.

- Make your gift online with a credit card. Click the green "Make Your Gift Now"  button found above on this web page. When you encounter the "Special Instructions/Other Designation" box, please enter "In Memory of Douglass North."
