Class of 1972

Welcome to your 50th reunion campaign!

Reunion giving has never been more important, and our campaign plays an integral, critical role in supporting top university priorities.

Supporting students, fueling groundbreaking research, advancing solutions to societal challenges—there are many ways to honor our 5th reunion year!

Any gift or pledge you make from January 1, 2022, through December 31, 2022, counts toward our campaign and adds your name to the Class of 1972 online honor rolls.

Gifts made through The Stanford Fund provide financial aid, strengthen academic programs, and support student-run organizations that enrich campus life. Equally as important, multiyear pledges and gifts of scholarship work to sustain Stanford’s promise of need-blind admissions, opening doors for deserving students.

However you contribute, together we will make a real difference.

Get involved!

Help us reach our goals by volunteering with our campaign committee—just a few hours of your time makes a big impact. For more information about our campaign, please contact our reunion campaign team.

Why I give

My experience at Stanford was life-changing. Stanford opened up incredible opportunities for me and fostered so many enduring relationships. This is my opportunity to give back and help support Stanford’s global leadership.

Stanford made it possible for me to have a meaningful career, make great friends, and become a mentor and leader. Because of the generosity of alumni, I received a scholarship, loans, and a work-study job that helped finance my education. I’ll take an opportunity to give back.
