Planned Giving

Alumni can establish a legacy to support the business school's future through wills, gifts of retirement plan assets, property, appreciated securities, and a range of life income gifts.


Support for your alma mater in perpetuity

Planned gifts provide an opportunity to have a meaningful impact on future generations of MBA students at Stanford.

Tax advantages

Your planned gift may qualify you for a deduction at the time the gift is made, a reduction of taxes on your estate, or avoidance of capital gains on gifts of appreciated securities.

World-class money management

Professional money management by Stanford Management Company can provide you and/or your beneficiaries with regular income for life.

Estate planning advice

Stanford's planned giving staff will always be available to discuss how best to meet your estate planning goals.

Membership in the Founding Grant Society

You will be inducted into the university's honorary organization that recognizes those who have included Stanford in their estate plans and will be invited to exclusive events at Stanford and the Graduate School of Business.
