Giving to Stanford Earth

The Stanford Earth Fund

Annual gifts from alumni to the Stanford Earth Fund are essential to the success of our teaching programs and research enterprise. As a primary source of unrestricted dollars, these gifts provide the dean with the flexibility to answer the school's most pressing challenges and to pursue promising new opportunities for which no other funding exists.

Stanford Earth is pleased to acknowledge and thank our lead annual fund donors at the following giving levels:

Leadership Circle: Gifts of $1,000 and above*


  • Notification of upcoming events and information about the latest research
  • Letter of thanks from the dean
  • Communication from a current student
  • Annual reporting on the impact of your support

Dean's Circle: Gifts of $10,000 or more*


  • Leadership Circle rewards, plus
  • Invitations to special events

*Alumni graduating within the last 10 years earn recognition with gifts of $500 and $5,000, respectively.

Your support of the Stanford Earth Fund will have an immediate and powerful impact. Please use the 'Make A Gift' button on this page to make a gift online, or contact Astrid Thompson for information about other ways to give.
