Earlier this year, Tad and Dianne Taube Philanthropies donated $14.5 million for research initiatives on addiction and concussion in youth in the Stanford University School of Medicine and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. $9.5 million of Taube’s donation will launch the Tad and Dianne Taube Youth Addiction Initiative, led by Laura Roberts, chair of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the School of Medicine. The other $5 million will initiate the Taube Stanford Concussion Collaborative to address concussion and addiction at its earliest onset in children.
The campaign for a new, larger home for Stanford’s Chabad House got a boost late this past summer when alum Tad Taube ’53 M.S. ’57 donated $1.3 million to the Jewish religious center serving Stanford community members.
