There are many ways to give to Cap and Gown and the organization’s efforts.


Your dues payments cover the costs of sponsoring events for the actives, such as Tapping Tea, Life After Stanford, Spring Luncheon, and Graduation Tea.  In addition, your dues fund the publication of our annual newsletter and cover our other operating costs.

Annual dues are $35 for general alumnae and $25 for actives and alumnae graduates within the last 5 years. We appreciate any additional contribution that you can make.

To learn more about how to pay dues, please visit the Dues page.


All six Cap and Gown scholarships are given to undergraduate women by Stanford University’s Office of Financial Aid.  We are happy that over 150 women students have benefited from this long tradition. We invite Cap and Gown scholarship recipients to participate in various events with our Alumnae Board and actives.  Donations to our scholarships are tax deductible.
