Online Gifts

Stanford's secure website for giving is a convenient way to make a gift. Use the drop down menu on the giving page to select where you would like your gift to go.

Honorary and Memorial Giving

If you would like to honor someone close to you or memorialize a departed one's legacy in a way that helps and heals others in need, please consider providing a gift to support one of Stanford's life-changing medical funds in their name.


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.

Planned Gifts

Stanford's team of gift planning experts can help you select from a wide variety of tax-wise giving strategies. Learn more about the range of planned giving opportunities to fit your exact needs.

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.

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 database.
