Better Than a Jet Plane

Larry Lokey, the former editor of the Stanford Daily who gave $33 million to Stanford University for stem cell research, says that giving away the money is more exciting than owning a jet plane.

His gift is also part of the growing momentum for private giving for stem cell research. CIRM's requirement for hefty matching on its building grants is likely to stimulate the giving even more.

Reporter Lia Hardin of the Stanford Daily reported Lokey's comments on jet planes, noting that he is also going to help fund a new building for the campus paper. Here is Stanford's press release on the gift. Sphere: Related Content
