Your Class of 1984 Reunion Campaign

Class of 1984

FROM Your reunion campaign co-chairs

A message to the Class of 1984

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 1984 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, 2024, will count towards our class reunion campaign and help our class make a collective impact.

Donate online

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:

Stanford University
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.

Our progress

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 and May 15, 2024 (including some prior gifts made in honor of reunion). Our remaining honor roll deadlines are August 31 and December 31. Final results will be posted in February 2025.

Why I give

For Stanford to be able to continue to offer a high quality educational experience, all alumni need to participate. Our support will pave the way for the next generation of leaders in the world. The significant impact a Stanford education (inside and outside the classroom) has on an individual is something I wish more people had the opportunity to experience.”

Michael J Bender, ’84

I have a deep appreciation and love for Stanford. The enduring friendships I made while at the university and subsequently through my Stanford involvement as an alum have been the most meaningful and consequential to me. For this, I am eternally grateful.”
