Parent Partners

Stanford offers special thanks to the Parent Partners Committee for The Stanford Fund. This small but mighty group of dedicated parent volunteers contacted more than 450 families to help enrich the undergraduate educational experience of every Stanford student by rallying support around raising gifts for The Stanford Fund.

How are Stanford Fund Dollars Allocated?

Gifts through The Stanford Fund are put to work each year benefiting every Stanford undergraduate. Because gifts to the fund are unrestricted, they are directed where they are needed most across top priorities in the undergraduate program.

Last year The Stanford Fund provided need-based financial aid, crucial seed funding for a variety of academic initiatives, and support for more than 100 student-run organizations on campus.
