Matching funds for faculty and staff donations to Haiti medical aid

Funds will support patient care at Hopital Albert Schweitzer in Port-au-Prince, which withstood the Jan.12 earthquake and is providing care.

Expanding a Stanford challenge grant for contributions to medical aid in Haiti, the university's senior leadership is contributing personal funds to match donations from all campus faculty and staff.

The additional funds extend an aid effort begun by the School of Medicine and Stanford Hospital & Clinics so that all contributions made by university employees will be matched.

The funds will support patient care at Hopital Albert Schweitzer (HAS) in Port-au-Prince, which withstood the Jan. 12 quake and is functioning as a major treatment center for mass casualties. It remains one of the few institutions providing care for the many thousands of individuals injured in the disaster.

Faculty and staff members can donate to the challenge grant by mailing a check or money order to the address below or by visiting: and paying by credit card.

To donate via the website, please follow these steps: 

  • Submit gift amount and credit card information through online form.
  • Click on "Make This A Tribute Gift" button, which appears AFTER your transaction is processed.
  • On Tribute Gift page:
    • Indicate that your donation is a matching gift.
    • Enter "Stanford University" as the Matching Organization so your gift can be matched appropriately.
    • You will receive an email confirmation for your gift amount only; Stanford's matching funds will not be reflected on your receipt.

    If you choose to mail a check, please mention your Stanford affiliation on the memo line of the check as well so that it can be matched. Make checks out to Hopital Albert Schweitzer (please do not make the check out to Stanford University, or write in disaster relief, earthquake relief, etc., as the check will not be recognized by the bank). Mail checks or money orders to:

    PO BOX 81046
    Pittsburgh, PA 15217

    Funds will be collected during a two-week challenge period, after which they will be tallied and matching funds will be sent to the Haitian hospital.
