We are excited and proud to share that the outcome of your 2021 class reunion campaigns which fueled more than $186 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. 2021 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 2021
“I made great friends at Stanford, but its true lasting impact on me is the sense of community and pride it has provided decades later. Seeing Stanford take a leading role in many of the important issues we are grappling with as a society today is heartening and inspiring.”

35th reunion campaign co-chair
“Stanford changed the trajectory of my life. Most of the beautiful things in my life today derived from Stanford (including my husband). I am grateful for my experience, and I am squeezing all of the moisture out of time to make sure that future generations receive every bit of what I received from this incredible institution.”
Regina Wallace-Jones, ’96

“Attending Stanford was an incredibly transformative experience for me, and one that I will always value as having set me up for success. I am volunteering in order to give back to that community and pay it forward to classes and students coming after me.”
