Your 2023 Reunion Campaign Report

You did it! You and your fellow alumni came together in 2023 and made great things happen.

We are excited and proud to share that the outcome of your 2023 class reunion campaigns fueled more than $191 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.

Your incredible generosity represents early commitments to the Stanford Vision and your dedication to the Stanford community on campus and beyond. 2023 reunion classes supported IDEAL, the Stanford Doerr 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 your help in making your class campaigns a success. To all the committee members, volunteers, and alumni who gave from the heart—thank you.

Why you gave in 2023

“I’m grateful for everything Stanford gave me—good times fountain hopping and tailgating, late nights working on Psets, and most importantly, lifelong friends and mentors. I give back to pay it forward.”

“Stanford plays an important role in my life. The education I received both in and out of the classroom has been foundational to the person I am, and I couldn't be more grateful for the friendships I forged during those four years. I’m grateful to give back.”

“Stanford was the beginning of the rest of my life. The people I met and experiences I had changed me forever. Helping to make life-changing experiences possible for future generations of students, particularly those who are first in their family to attend university, gives me great satisfaction.”
