Make a Gift

Main content start

The Office for Religious & Spiritual Life (ORSL) welcomes financial gifts from alumni, parents, friends, foundations, and organizations who would like to support Memorial Church as well as programs and activities across campus that help guide, nurture and enhance spiritual, religious and ethical life within the Stanford University community.

ORSL is a vital part of the University and the Deans for Religious Life aim to promote enriching dialogue, meaningful ritual, and enduring friendships among people of all religious backgrounds.  The areas of greatest need encompass support for student programs as well as discretionary funds for the Dean for Religious Life.  Your support in these areas will help Stanford accomplish its mission to nurture spiritual, religious, and ethical life on campus.
