Members of the Stanford Graduate School of Business Trust play an important role in managing a portion of the GSB endowment.
The Business School Trust was established to create an opportunity for alumni to invest gifts separately from the general endowment of the GSB, and to manage those funds aggressively for growth.
The trust has become one of the school’s major sources of endowed, unrestricted income and is used at the discretion of Dean Jonathan Levin to address the top priorities of the school. The GSB takes great pride in the dedication and financial acumen of the alumni who have served on the trust over the years.
Raj Patel serves as Chair of the Trust and is supported by Vice Chair Elizabeth Betten and Second Vice Chair Cheryl Frank.
