A message to the Class of 2009
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 2009 reunion campaign, and are asking you to join the campaign committee alongside us.
The 15th 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!

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.
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.
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.
Support high-priority initiatives through impact funds
When you give through The Stanford Fund, you support many aspects of the undergraduate experience with a single gift. Impact funds offer targeted opportunities to support university initiatives that align with your specific interests.
During your reunion campaign, you can designate your gifts to any or all of the funds listed here. Giving through an impact fund comes with the same benefits of giving through The Stanford Fund, including recognition as a Leadership Circle or President’s Fund-level donor.
Contribute to a more equitable future in Stanford education by giving toward need-based financial aid. Nearly half of all undergrads receive financial aid each year.
Promote justice, belonging, and equity on campus with a gift toward the Centers for Equity, Community, and Leadership.
Student social life
Sustain the campus-wide events and programming that make the Stanford experience fulfilling, unique, and fun.
Support all three undergraduate schools to expand class offerings and provide additional academic support for students.
Mental health resources
Help increase appointment capacity at Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), expand virtual and telephone visits, and improve community outreach.
Help provide flexible grants for undergraduate students to cover unexpected expenses like emergency travel or registration fees for a conference.
Support the student-led organizations that help undergraduates develop new skills, build connections, and pursue their passions.
All of the above!
Support all these important initiatives with one gift through The Stanford Fund.
