Planned Gifts:

Planned Gifts are a way for donors to make a sizable contribution to the school while potentially earning income for life. Through a bequest or gift through your estate, you can make a gift of a fixed amount or percentage of assets. Life Income Gifts allow you to give assets to Stanford while providing yourself or others with income for a period of time before Stanford is permitted to use your gift. For more information, contact the Planned Giving team: planned.giving@stanford.edu or 800.227.8977 ext. 54358.
