Think of volunteering as an investment in Stanford’s future. Whether it’s your 5th or 50th reunion year, here are five reasons why you should consider a volunteer role:
1. Lead by example.
Volunteers are vital to the success of class reunion campaigns. As a co-chair or committee member, there’s a place for everyone.
2. Reconnect with classmates.
Whether you’re able to reach out to hundreds of classmates or just a few close friends, you will renew past friendships and create new bonds.
3. Pay it forward.
Perhaps you’re grateful for the different ways that Stanford opened doors, helped you grow, introduced you to lifelong friends or a spouse, or allowed you to find your own path. Volunteering is a meaningful and tangible way to give back.
4. Choose when and how to help.
You can give your time, make a contribution, call your friends, or send letters—there are many ways to make a difference, and lots of flexibility in making your volunteerism fit into your busy schedule.
5. Support Stanford and undergraduate students.
Reunion giving campaigns are the backbone of Stanford’s commitment to provide need-based aid for all qualified students, no matter their background or circumstance. Your classmates also have choices to support university-wide programs and medical research.

Why I volunteer
Many of my fondest and most rewarding experiences occurred at Stanford. My time there was truly transformative and continues to pay dividends. I’m excited about playing a small role to pay some of that forward.
