Students and The Stanford Fund

If you’re a Stanford student, chances are The Stanford Fund has contributed to your experience—whether through financial aid, student life, or academics. It plays a major role in the Stanford experience—from providing financial aid to supporting memorable events like MAUS and BlackFest.

You can help ensure those same experiences are here for the next generation of undergrads, too.

Seniors for The Stanford Fund

Every year, the graduating class comes together to create and execute a fundraising campaign to both commemorate their time at Stanford and to give directly to areas of need, like financial aid. Making a gift isn't the only way to give back, but it's a powerful way to support the departments, programs, and people you care about.

Support what matters to you

financial aid

Education through scholarships, not loans

Support a more equitable future in Stanford education by giving toward need-based financial aid. Nearly half of all undergrads receive financial aid each year.

Student life

Self-expression, change, leadership

Support the student groups and campus-wide events that make the Stanford experience fulfilling, unique, and fun.

A helping hand

Help provide flexible grants for undergraduate students to cover unexpected expenses like emergency travel or registration fees for a conference.

Why now?

This year, more students and their families are experiencing economic hardship due to the global pandemic, and the need for financial aid is growing. Gifts through The Stanford Fund can be used immediately to address urgent needs that aren’t covered by other sources of funding.

You make a difference

Stanford became home the moment I arrived on move-in day. I’m involved with The Stanford Fund because I want future students to have the same experience that I’ve been afforded. Stanford has shaped me into the person that I am today.
