Consider a gift
Since the very founding of Stanford, its library collections have been shaped and immeasurably enriched by gifts of many kinds. Today, we rely on a combination of endowments, gifts of collections, and cash gifts to supplement and build upon the operational support of the university. Much of what we offer students and researchers is directly the result of donations shaped by the interests and knowledge of the donor.
Please call or write to David Jordan at 650-723-3866 or firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss any questions or for assistance with these gift opportunities:
- bequest and beneficiary designations
- life-income gifts
- foundation and corporate gifts
- memorial and celebratory gifts
- gifts of securities
- gifts-in-kind of collections, rare books, manuscripts, maps or archives
