Class of 1977

Welcome to your 45th reunion campaign!

1977 class diamond

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 1977 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.

Our progress

On behalf of Stanford and the class giving team we gratefully acknowledge alumni who have made a gift or pledge to Stanford in honor of reunion.  These numbers reflect campaign commitments made between January 1, 2022 and August 31, 2022 (including some prior gifts made in honor of reunion). Our remaining honor roll deadline is December 31. Final results will be posted in February 2023. Find your name on our class honor roll here.

Why I give

Being part of this incredible community has enriched my life in countless ways. I volunteer to support the university, student life, interdisciplinary studies, and public service in any way I can. It's the least I can do.
