By spreading payments over a period of time—typically not more than five years—pledges allow donors to make larger commitments and fulfill them at a comfortable pace. Please contact us for personal assistance.

Planned Gifts

Stanford's team of gift planning experts can help you select from a wide variety of tax-wise giving strategies. Visit our planned giving page to learn more about bequests, gifts of retirement plan assets, real property, and the complete range of life income gifts, including charitable remainder trusts, gift annuities, and pooled income funds.

Gifts of Securities

Donors who choose to give appreciated securities can receive a charitable tax deduction for the full market value of the securities and avoid capital gains tax. Publicly traded securities held in a brokerage account may be transferred electronically to Stanford University. Please contact us for personal assistance.

Tribute Gifts

Gifts made through any of the methods described above can be designated in honor or memory of a loved one or in celebration of a milestone event, such as a birthday or anniversary. If you chose to make a tribute gift on Stanford's secure Giving to Stanford website, please indicate the honoree in the Special Instructions/Other Designation field. You may also contact us for personal assistance.

Matching Gifts

Many companies match the charitable gifts of their employees. To find out if your company offers a matching-gift program, please visit our Online Database of Matching Gift Companies, which is also embedded in the secure Giving to Stanford website.
