Your 2020 Reunion Campaign Report

You did it! You and your fellow alumni came together in 2020 and made great things happen.

We are excited and proud to share that the outcome of your extended 2020 class reunion campaigns which fueled more than $279 million in gifts and pledges. What isn’t captured in the dollar amount is the true impact of your gifts. Your investments will pay dividends in the lives of students, in groundbreaking research and solutions, and in the people and programs working to address the world’s most pressing challenges.

This incredible success represents some of the early commitments to the Stanford Vision and your dedication to the Stanford community. 2020 reunion classes supported IDEAL, School of Sustainability, undergraduate education, endowed scholarships, Stanford Impact Labs, Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI), Athletics, Freeman Spogli Institute (FSI), and of course, The Stanford Fund.

We want to extend our deepest appreciation for helping make your class campaigns a success. To all the committee members, volunteers, and alumni who gave from the heart—thank you.

Why you gave in 2020

Many of my fondest and most rewarding experiences occurred at Stanford. My time there was truly transformative and continues to pay dividends. I’m excited about playing a small role to pay some of that forward.

“Stanford truly made an impact on my life. While there, I learned how to think and seek out opportunity, and gained an everlasting and growing community of friends. Whatever small role I can play in supporting Stanford is time well spent.”

James Higa 80

“I came to Stanford as a bewildered 18-year-old with no inkling of what lay ahead. Stanford was transformative in shaping the arc of my life’s journey. I volunteer and give back with gratitude, and pay it forward with hope for those who are yet to come.”
