Innovation means trying new things and, in some cases, failing and trying again.
The Engineering Fund enables us to take these risks. In a fast‐moving discipline like engineering, we must be ready to seize opportunities. Unrestricted funds allow us to direct resources where they are most needed, when they are needed. This flexibility helps us hire, support and retain the most promising new faculty, fund out‐of‐the‐box ideas, and explore new research concepts. It helps us create an unparalleled experience for our students by helping us fund scholarships and summer programs, expand mentorship and invest in new approaches to teaching engineering. Gifts to the Engineering Fund have a powerful and immediate impact. We thank you for considering a generous annual commitment.
Terman and Dean’s Circle donors learn about the school’s latest achievements at an annual event for our most engaged and generous alumni and friends and receive an annual report on the impact of their giving. All Leadership Giving donors have access to a campus liaison who provides special communications throughout the year, including research news and invitations to school events. They are also recognized on Stanford’s Honor Rolls website.
Terman Circle: $25,000 or more
Dean’s Circle: $10,000 to $24,999
Leadership Circle: $1,000 to $9,999
