Contributions in memory of Chancellor Emeritus William H. Danforth, MD, can be made to the Danforth Scholars Program.

Established in 1998 to honor the exemplary leadership and service of Dr. Danforth and his wife, Elizabeth Gray Danforth, this important program has helped make a Washington University education possible for more than 650 students from across the country and around the world. Educating young people who would become stewards of the future was at the core of Dr. Danforth’s life’s work. He was deeply involved in the Danforth Scholars program, which represents his legacy of fostering in students an exceptional intellectual and creative acuity—and a commitment to community, diversity, and kindness.
