Memorial and Honorary Gifts
HONOR A FRIEND, RECOGNIZE A CAREGIVER, OR REMEMBER A LOVED ONE BY MAKING A GIFT TO STANFORD
A memorial gift is a meaningful way to remember someone important to you. These gifts help keep the memory of your loved one alive and have lasting impact on the broader community.
Alternatively, you can share this link:
It can be printed on programs, shared in online tribute sites, or shared by email.
An honorary gift is a powerful way to express your appreciation for someone and make a difference. These gifts can be in honor of a birthday, anniversary, or graduation—or just to thank a special friend. You also can honor your physician, nurse, or caregiver to show your gratitude for the care you, or someone you love, received at Stanford.
DONATIONS IN LIEU OF FLOWERS
If you are arranging a funeral or a memorial service, you may want to ask people to donate to Stanford instead of giving flowers. We can provide ‘in memory’ donation envelopes that can be placed at the funeral or memorial service. Those who would like to make a gift can then send any donations to our office at their convenience.
If you would like ‘in memory’ envelopes, or have questions about using the link above, please call Nicholas Mourlam at 650.497.6001 or email us:
DONATIONS BY CHECK
Please make out your check to Stanford University, and write on the memo line of the check the desired fund allocation. You may also indicate on the memo line whether the gift is in honor of or in memory of and the full name of a friend or loved one. You are welcome to include any notes on additional sheets of paper along with your gift to further specify your intentions. Please indicate the mailing address of where you would like any acknowledgments of your gift sent, if desired.
Please also provide the name and address of the individual you would like to receive a notification from us of your special ‘in memory of’ or ‘in honor of’ gift. Stanford will not share the amount of the donation.
