Why I gave

“Stanford is a unique and fulfilling environment for students to grow, learn, connect, and define their place in the world. Having experienced incredible opportunities in education, friendships, creativity, and entrepreneurship at Stanford, it's important to give back so future generations can have their own impactful opportunities.”

Ali Weiss, ’08

“I’ve come to learn that one of the greatest gifts is access to opportunity so that you can live up to your own potential. We can come together and invest in the next generation of Stanford students, including those who may be coming from behind. This is why I’m especially hopeful for our campaign.”

Jessica Lee, ’08

“Stanford is a special place. It exudes excellence and is wonderfully weird as well. It's where I met my closest friends, discovered my passions, and made cherished memories. I hope my contribution not only helps continue this tradition of excellence, but also keeps Stanford the unique place I love.”
