2015–16 Annual Summary

Leadership Circle Giving

Thank you to every member of the Leadership Circle for propelling our success in 2015–16! Together you contributed $8.75 million to support students through The Stanford Fund for Undergraduate Education.

FY16 highlights include:

  • More than 5,900 individuals made a Leadership Circle-level gift through The Stanford Fund.
  • Nearly 10 percent of Leadership Circle members are young alumni (nine or fewer years since graduation).
  • Leadership Circle gifts accounted for 34 percent of the more than $25 million raised through The Stanford Fund.

We know that many Leadership Circle donors also give generously to support athletics, arts, and other university priorities. We are grateful to these individuals for making The Stanford Fund part of their overall support for the university.

How are Stanford Fund dollars allocated?

Each year, the president allocates The Stanford Fund to top priorities in undergraduate education. The Stanford Fund supports need-based financial aid, innovative academic programs, and student life.
