Sandra Day O’Connor
Above are just some of the companies and individuals who have come out of the legacy left behind by Leland and Jane Stanford.
Would they have all been as successful without the influence of Stanford University? We will never know.
Very few people can do what they did (they donated $40,000,000 to the creation of what was then Leland Stanford Junior University which was named after their late son). In today’s money that is over $1,000,000,000.
While we can’t all do something as generous as that, we all CAN do something to leave behind a positive legacy.
What are you doing for your legacy?
Have a great day!
