Mission & Service

Who We Are - Susan to provide update


The Stanford Parents’ Club is a worldwide network of Stanford families, with over 9000 members from 47 countries.   

Founded in 1924 as a non-profit and run entirely by member volunteers, the Club offers parents and guardians opportunities to learn, connect and have fun as they build community together.  

The Club’s signature programs include: 

  • Online Distinguished Speaker Series

  • Social Activities

  • Interactive Online Communities

The Club also provides scholarships to Stanford students and fosters a culture of volunteerism supporting Stanford and the Stanford family community.  

Membership is free, and all parents, guardians and support persons of current and former Stanford students are welcome and encouraged to join. Learn more and join today
