The 2020 class reunion campaigns have wrapped up, and we’ve tallied the results!
480 members of the Class of 1980 generated almost $23 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 1980 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
Stanford was important to me as a student and remains an important part of my life. I’m thrilled to be working with the Class of 1980 to give back to this amazing institution.
