Giving Programs

The Stanford Parents' Program

When parents give to The Stanford Fund for Undergraduate Education, they support all Stanford undergrads. Since tuition covers only about two-thirds of the cost of a Stanford education, every student gains from the generosity of past and present benefactors.

During the 2012–13 school year, more than 5,980 parents gave a combined $4.6 million to The Stanford Fund.

About Parent Partners

Parent Partners is a unique opportunity open to parents of current Stanford undergraduates. Those who give $1,500 or more annually to The Stanford Fund become members and receive the following:

  • Invitations to special events
  • Recognition in Stanford publications
  • Special communications throughout the year

Volunteer Opportunities

Stanford parents are extremely generous with their time. Some get involved in their local area through the Stanford Alumni Association. Others help with Stanford gatherings in their home or workplace.

Another way to get involved is by becoming a member of the Parent Partners Committee for The Stanford Fund. The committee raises gifts by spreading the word about the Parent Partners giving level. Volunteers are invited to a special reception during Parents' Weekend and receive recognition in Stanford publications.

The Parents' Advisory Board leads the way in volunteerism. This group of 55 families from around the United States and the world meets on campus three times per year. In addition to assisting with outreach events, the board provides feedback to the university's administration and assists with fundraising.
