Class of 1982

Welcome to your 40th reunion campaign!

1982 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!

Class of 1982 matching gift

When you contribute your first gift of any amount to our 40th reunion campaign, our participation co-chairs will donate an additional $250 to The Stanford Fund.

The $250 match applies to all new donor gifts and pledges through December 31, 2022.

Heartfelt thank you to the generous 1982 participation co-chairs providing this match:
Malcolm Bertoni
David Cremin
Bob Hellman
Jeff Holland
Addie Swartz

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 1982 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

I give because I’m grateful for all that Stanford gave me. Our gifts today ensure that the university continues to grow and prosper.

Stanford opened up a broader world for me, and it continues to do the same for others. I’m proud to be part of the Stanford community, and to do what I can to help the university continue to make the world a better place.

Stanford transformed me. The community, education, leadership opportunities, and lifelong friendships I forged here have enriched my life, and I’m happy to give back to the place that meant so much.
