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

“Stanford was the beginning of the rest of my life. The people I met and experiences I had changed me forever. Helping to make life-changing experiences possible for future generations of students, particularly those who are first in their family to attend university, gives me great satisfaction.”
