Sponsorships and Gifts

Sponsorships play an essential role at SPIRE. Your sponsorship and contributions support the three pillars of Stanford Professionals in Real Estate (SPIRE). SPIRE is committed to building the Stanford real estate community by connecting alumni, students, and faculty across a multitude of professional disciplines.

Sponsoring the Stanford Real Estate Hall of Fame entitles the sponsor to recognition at the event, on the SPIRE website, in the tribute program and in the December newsletter distributed to more than 2,600 members. Sponsors will also receive VIP seating at the event. Tribute programs will be distributed to everyone at the banquet.

Stanford Professionals in Real Estate (SPIRE) is approved by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, and all donations are tax deductible to the full extent provided by law. SPIRE’s federal tax identification number is 37-1578711.
