Business School Fund

Annual and reunion gifts made through the Business School Fund provide us with the opportunity to strengthen our core and seed capital so that we can seize new opportunities.

By contributing to flexible, current-use spending, you make it possible for the school to pioneer strategic initiatives, nurture faculty, recruit the next wave of global business leaders regardless of their financial situation, and discover fresh ways to engage alumni across the world.

Strategic Initiatives

Initiatives include academic collaborations such as the Executive Program for Education Leaders, curricular innovations like Startup Garage: The China Version, which launched this year, and continued investment in education technology. 

Student Experience & Support

Gifts fill the $2.3 million gap between student need and dedicated financial aid funds, and support fellowships and programs such as the Global Fellows Program, a pilot focusing initially on Africa, which attracts and supports future leaders who might no otherwise apply to Stanford GSB.

Faculty Support

With few dedicated sources of funding for junior faculty, the GSB relies on the Business School Fund to cultivate and secure the best new tenure-line junior faculty who help shape the student experience and build the school’s intellectual capital into the future.

Alumni Engagement

The Business of Change events, newly launched Women’s Professional Reboot, and innovative educational technology keep alumni in touch with one another and the school.
