A message to the Class of 1983
Every five years, our class has the opportunity to reconnect, reflect on and celebrate our time at Stanford. Some found our calling here, others found partners, and all of us made lifelong friends. We’ve signed on as co-chairs for our Class of 1983 reunion campaign, and are asking you to join the campaign committee alongside us.
The 40th Reunion Campaign focuses on two goals:
Creating fun and memorable opportunities for class connection.
Raising support to ensure current students have the same opportunities we had.
Throughout the year, this page will be updated to reflect giving opportunities, events and highlights from the campaign. We hope you’ll join us in coming together to celebrate and make an impact!

Give back during your reunion year
So much of our student experience was supported by alumni before us, and now it’s our chance to pay it forward.
Whether you give through The Stanford Fund or to another part of Stanford, you can choose to support an area that was important to your experience or that you are passionate about.
All gifts made through December 31, 2023, will count towards our class reunion campaign and help our class make a collective impact.
Make a secure gift online today. You can make an immediate impact by supporting Stanford students in ways that are meaningful to you.
Mail your gift
Make checks payable to “The Board of Trustees of the Leland Stanford Junior University” or “Stanford University” and mail to:
P.O. Box 20466
Stanford, CA 94309-0466
Please include a note telling us how you’d like your gift to be used (for example, “gift designated for The Stanford Fund”).
Make a pledge
Reunion commitments often take the form of multiyear pledges, typically over a five-year period. The entire amount of the pledge counts toward your class’ reunion giving total.
Make a planned gift
Planned giving involves providing for a future gift to charities through your financial and estate plans. The university welcomes gifts made through different planned giving arrangements.
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, 2023 and August 31, 2023 (including some prior gifts made in honor of reunion). Our remaining honor roll deadline is December 31. Final results will be posted in February 2024.

Why I give
“I could never have afforded to go to Stanford without financial aid. I wanted to give back so others could also benefit from the incredible experiences I was able to have.”
Caroline Chang, ’83
“Stanford is near and dear to my heart. I have volunteered for Stanford for as long as I can remember. I especially enjoy volunteering during reunion years to reconnect with friends from long ago and to make connections with new friends.”
Cindy Hunter Lang, ’83
