Being a Stanford student-athlete is a special experience because you really get the best of both the academic and athletic worlds. The support of Stanford Athletics’ donors does not go unnoticed, and I couldn’t be more thankful for the opportunities you provide to student-athletes, like myself.

Frequently asked questions
Stanford Athletics Giving Day is a new 24-hour competition that raises money to support each of our 36 varsity programs. Every gift, regardless of the amount, helps all student-athletes.
Giving Day begins at 9 a.m. Pacific Time on Thursday, April 6, in celebration of National Student-Athlete Day, and runs for 24 hours. The last gift to count towards Giving Day totals must be submitted online by 9 a.m. Pacific Time on Friday, April 7.
The first $50,000 in gifts made between 9 a.m. Pacific Time on April 6, 2023 and 9 a.m. Pacific Time on April 7, 2023, supporting the Buck/Cardinal Club or any sport improvement fund will be matched 1:1 thanks to the generosity of the Buck/Cardinal Club Board. The matching dollars will follow the designation of the gift (for example, a $100 gift to the baseball program secures $100 in matching funds for the baseball sport improvement fund, for a total gift of $200 to the baseball program). In order to ensure that as many people as possible can benefit from this match, the maximum gift amount that will be matched is $1,000 per donor.
Gifts must be made online or by phone (650) 725-4360 opt. 3 to count towards Giving Day totals.
