Class of 1970

2020 Reunion Campaign Report

See how you and your classmates made a difference


The 2020 class reunion campaigns have wrapped up, and we’ve tallied the results!

485 members of the Class of 1970 generated more than $22 million in gifts and pledges to support undergraduate education, financial aid, groundbreaking research, and so much more.

We can’t thank you enough for your generosity and commitment. Your gift is supporting those who are learning, researching, and helping Stanford drive positive change in the world.

Class of 1970 reunion campaign results

These figures include gifts and pledges made between January 1, 2020, 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

Giving back to Stanford is pure joy. I get to work with my dearest lifelong friends on projects that make a demonstrable difference in the world. What could be better?
