Reunion campaign results

These figures include gifts and pledges made between January 1, 2021, and December 31, 2021, as well as some extraordinary gifts given in support of reunion outside the calendar year.

We also acknowledge and thank those classmates who are members of the Founding Grant Society because they have included a future gift to Stanford in their estate plans. These future gifts have been arranged through bequests, charitable remainder trusts, charitable gift annuities, and other forms of deferred gifts.  You can find your name on the Founding Grant Society roll.

If you don’t see your name on the list, have included Stanford in your estate plan but not yet let us know, and/or believe you should be included as a member because of a future gift in your estate plans, please contact the Office of Planned Giving.

Why I gave

I don’t consider myself a “volunteer” for Stanford. You do it because you love being part of the family, and resonate in the joys and success of a family of which you are so proud. Thus, I am a Stanford family member and not a volunteer, and I do what devoted family members do.
