Stanford Hospital $27.5m pledge

Donation

Andreesen and wife Laura pledge $27.5 million to Stanford Hospital & Clinics, marking their first philanthropic commitment as a couple. The money is pledged to upgrade emergency services and build the Marc and Laura Andreessen Emergency Department.

Both of us feel so strongly that, being part of the new generation in Silicon Valley, we have a responsibility to hopefully inspire other people in our age range to make significant philanthropic commitments.
