A gift membership to the Stanford Historical Society is great for that person who has everything!

With a one-year gift membership, your family member, friend, colleague, or neighbor will receive the following membership benefits:

  • Invitations to all SHS programs

  • Exclusive access to members-only events, and to the annual meeting and reception

  • Three mailed copies of Sandstone & Tile each year

  • Recognition as a donor to SHS & Stanford University

In addition, they will have the gratification of belonging to a vibrant and welcoming SHS community, as well as knowing that they are helping to promote the preservation of Stanford's rich heritage.
