Bill and Mimi Stanford Scholarship Fund
Like many of his generation, Bill was the first in his family to attend college. He enjoyed the nurturing and stimulating environment at Drew and, after serving in the Navy, returned to Drew to work in admissions. His career path ultimately led to Lehigh University, where he served for 34 years as director of financial aid, retiring in 2001.
Throughout the years Bill regularly donated to Drew, fondly recalling the professors and classmates who helped to stretch him intellectually. At retirement, he considered making a planned gift, and sat down with his financial planner, lawyer and accountant. "I began to think more seriously about what Drew had meant to me," says Bill. "As a financial aid director all those years, creating a need-based scholarship fund was a no brainer! It has been exciting."
