About Beyond the Farm

At the heart of Stanford University's founding principles is "a desire to render the greatest possible service to mankind." Though these are Jane Stanford's words, generations of Stanford alumni have made these words their own—this commitment is what Beyond the Farm is all about.

Beyond the Farm seeks to extend Stanford's spirit of service to communities around the world through the volunteer efforts of alumni, family and friends. With the dedication of every individual within the University's 200,000+ strong alumni community, we can make a world of difference.

Make Jane proud. Continue Stanford's legacy of service beyond the Farm.
