Reunion giving campaigns

Class reunion campaigns could not succeed without the help of dedicated volunteers. By reaching out to classmates for gifts to The Stanford Fund and the University broadly, you are enhancing our undergraduates’ experiences and helping Stanford develop new and innovative ways of addressing problems of the world. All gifts help the class reach its dollar and participation goals.

Ready to join in? Talk to your class giving officer today or learn more about reunion volunteer opportunities.

Parents and families

Stanford parent and family volunteers

Parents and family members are among Stanford’s most dedicated volunteers. Get involved by hosting local events or assisting with Stanford gatherings, talking to fellow families, or participating in alumni clubs. However you choose to help, we’re grateful for your contributions.

Parent and Family Partners Committee

The Parent and Family Partners Committee raises funds by spreading the word about giving at the Parent and Family Partners level ($2,500 or more annually, per family). Committee volunteers are invited to special events and receive recognition in Stanford publications.

The Parent and Family Advisory Board

Leading the way in parent volunteerism, the advisory board assists with fundraising, plans outreach events, and provides important feedback to the university’s administration. This group typically comprises more than 50 families from around the world and meets three times per year. Learn more about how families team up with The Stanford Fund to support students.
