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

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.

Stan Young, ’82

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.
