Giving to CASBS

Fellows talking at CASBS

Tackling big ideas and big problems requires substantial investment.

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.

If you would like to learn more about giving to the Center, please contact Susan Hansen, development director, at casbs-giving@stanford.edu or (650) 736-0750.

Annual Giving

Annual gifts from past fellows, visiting scholars, and friends support the important 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
