Special membership offer for Stanford parents and guardians

Student & Young Alumni Gift Membership

Give your Stanford student or soon-to-be graduate a Stanford Historical Society (SHS) gift membership. The membership will enrich their connection to Stanford University; it will also provide them with important knowledge of the University.

In appreciation of Stanford families, we will offer discounted gift membership options so that your student will enjoy the same membership level even after graduation.

(NOTE: Current annual non-student memberships begin at the $60 level.)

Membership Options:

  • 1-year student membership $10
  • 3-year student membership $30
  • 5-year student membership $50
  • 10-year student membership $100

Membership Benefits:

  • Advance invitations to all SHS programs
  • Exclusive access to members-only events, and to the annual members’ meeting and reception
  • Three issues of Sandstone & Tile each year
  • You will be recognized as a donor to SHS & Stanford University

SHS is part of Stanford University, a 501(c)(3) organization. SHS membership dues are considered gifts to Stanford University and are tax-deductible.

You can give a gift membership on the University’s Make a Gift webpage. Enter the amount of the gift membership dues in the amount box on the linked page and under “Special Instructions/ Other designation” enter the membership option e.g. "10-year student membership", your student’s name and mailing address (and email address if available). Then click on the "Stanford Account" button to continue. If you do not have a Stanford Account, you can either follow that link to create an account or click the "Continue as Guest" button to complete your credit card transaction.
