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

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.
