Welcome to your 25th reunion campaign!

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!

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 1997 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

Some of my most magical memories are from Stanford. I met some of the best and brightest minds, and the kaleidoscope of diversity was unparalleled. Stanford offers a warm and welcoming environment for interdisciplinary learning that can unlock many life changing opportunities.

The friendships and network that I established at Stanford have significantly enhanced my life. As the top academic and athletic intuition, it’s important to provide others with the same opportunity that I was given.
