Annual gifts are vital to Stanford Engineering.

They are your personal investment in the school, helping to hire outstanding faculty and promote programs that foster intellectual curiosity and shape future leaders. These gifts equip cutting-edge facilities where our faculty and students conduct research and tackle today’s global issues.

Your gift is vital to enabling Stanford Engineering to accomplish its goals. Each year, annual giving supports start‐up funding for young faculty. Often, such funding is a deciding factor in choosing Stanford over peer institutions or a role in the corporate sector. And new faculty and new labs mean more opportunities for our talented students to learn how engineering can impact our lives and our planet.

The long‐term results are apparent in Stanford Engineering’s ability to solve some of the most profound technical challenges of our day. As our list of faculty supported by annual giving grows every year, so does the impact of your generosity.

Why Giving Matters
Stanford provided me with resources and opportunities that have transformed my life. Thanks to those who generously gave to Stanford before me, I was able to receive fellowship and other financial assistantship during my graduate studies.
June Lee, PhD ’17

How to Make a Gift

Why Give?
It is indeed my pleasure and my duty to give back to Stanford. The school has played a major role in shaping my career and I attribute a significant part of my success to the training I received at Stanford. My gift, although not very large, is one way for me to say ‘Thank you, Stanford.’
Dhruv Agarwala, MS ’94, Materials Science and Engineering
