FROM Your reunion campaign co-chairs

A message to the Class of 2003

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 2003 reunion campaign, and are asking you to join the campaign committee alongside us.

The 20th Reunion Campaign focuses on two goals:

  • Creating fun and memorable opportunities for class connection.

  • Raising support to ensure current students have the same (or better) 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!

Warmly,

Melynda Barnes Oussayef, Jessica Benford, Jay Desai, Nidhi Gupta, Lindsay McGuire, Luke Powell, Lily Sarafan, and Roy Simkhay

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 one that you’re passionate about.

All gifts made through December 31, 2023, 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 “Stanford University” and mail to:

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.

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 always felt privileged to be a part of the Stanford community, and I'd like to pay it forward so that future generations can have that same feeling of appreciation. Volunteering also lets me reconnect with so many wonderful people from our time on the Farm together."
