As the BloombergJoseph Bankman and Barbara Fried, SBF’s parents, are lawyers and long-time professors at Stanford Law School.
Stanford has received donations from the FTX Foundation and FTX-related companies, primarily for pandemic prevention and research,” confirms a spokesperson for the renowned university.
The university owes its generous donations to its links with the progenitors of the former star entrepreneur of the crypto. At least, that’s the accusation made by the plaintiffs’ lawyers, who demanded that the donations be reimbursed.
