Why I gave

“Our 50th reunion is a major milestone. We can all look back and identify moments in our life that were possible because of our Stanford experience. There is no time like now to show our appreciation.”

“It’s vital for alumni, who know Stanford best, to endorse for all to see that the university is a wise steward in pursuing its manifold and complex aims. I believe it is a vibrant institution with an even brighter future ahead.”
