Our Board underwrites all of our operational costs – 100% of your support goes directly to Stanford student-athletes as they promote and serve outstanding Bay Area community service organizations like Haven House, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, and Ronald McDonald House.  

Lifetime Cardinal is an independent organization of Stanford alumni, mentors, and supporters united to sustain the championship legacy of Stanford student-athletes through the changing landscape of college sports. 


We offer NIL income opportunities, career development programs, and financial literacy education.  Support from across the Cardinal community enabled us to fund agreements with over 140 student-athletes for 2023-24.
