About John Arrillaga:
John Arrillaga graduated from Morningside High school in 1955 and won a basketball scholarship at Stanford University, graduating with a B.A. in geography (no longer offered) in 1960. John also received his MBA from Stanford.
John Arrillaga is a wealthy American businessman who made his wealth through real estate. He is one of the most prominent landowners in Silicon Valley. In the 1960s, Arrillaga and business partner Richard Peery bought California farmland and converted it into office space. They became two of Silicon Valley's biggest commercial landlords with more than 12,000,000 square feet (1, 3).
He is well known for his generosity and support of the university. The alumni center, the Frances C. Arrillaga Building, is named in memory of his first wife, and various other athletic facilities carry his surname. In May 2006, Arrillaga gave $100 million to Stanford (1). In 2008, John offered Menlo Park some $8 million or more to build a new Burgess Gym at the city's Civic Center (2). While generous, John remains quite humble, preferring to keep most of his contributions and gifts under wraps.
