Give Your Senior Gift to The Stanford Flipside

So here we are. In just a few weeks’ time, you’ll have graduated, received your degree, and started a new chapter in your life. Let’s take this opportunity to reflect on the past four years and to thank those who made it possible: your parents, your friends, your professors, and of course, The Stanford Flipside.

That’s why we’d like to take this opportunity to invite you to participate in the Senior Gift. For over a hundred years it has been part of the Stanford tradition for graduating seniors to give back, and now it is your turn.

We know you have many options when it comes to giving back to Stanford. You can pay tuition, donate to The Stanford Fund, and you can even pay your library fees. Rather than giving your senior gift to the University, we would like to encourage you to donate to The Flipside. Stanford might have provided classes, but where were they when you wanted a puzzle to solve or something to do during class? The Flipside has been there for you at all stages of your Stanford career. 

Now I know you might be wondering what we will do with your gift. First, Flipsides don’t just magically appear. Part of your gift will be given to your wonderful Flipside staff as a thank you for their contribution to life at Stanford.  But more importantly, with your support, we will do what Stanford does best–buy big buildings. Imagine Arillaga Dining Commons, but full of ball pit balls.
