All for One
All of us.
This past summer, you came together with your fellow young alumni and contributed to the All for One Challenge. Your generosity secured a Stanford Fund Scholarship for an incoming frosh in need. Thank you.

"I'd like to thank you for your donation through the Stanford Fund; my education would not be possible without you! As a low-income student, your help provides me with the ability to attend this institution without putting a financial burden on my family. I'm able to go to college without stressing over tuition fees, which is important since college can already be stressful enough.
My experience at Stanford so far has been great. I plan to double major in film studies and comparative studies in race and ethnicity. My hope for the future is to be a filmmaker. Stanford has definitely provided me the academic capability to explore those passions in a classroom setting; one of my favorite current classes is Urban Film and Music taught by Professor Charles Kronengold.
Outside the classroom, I've also found enriching activities. I'm currently a director for MINT Magazine, Stanford's editorial fashion and culture magazine, where I'm able to experiment creatively and partner with large brands. I'm part of Stanford's Asian American Theater Project, a theater company that promotes diversity in the arts. Additionally, I volunteer to tutor math at Sequoia High School through the Haas Center's High School Supportive Initiative.
After a long day of classes, work, and clubs, I'm able to run home to Ujamaa, the ethnic-themed dorm where I'm living this year. In Ujamaa, I've found an immensely accepting and loving community that prides itself on diversity. But, as a whole, I've found great communities all over Stanford that have made my fall quarter really wonderful.
Again, thank you so much for your support! My first year at Stanford is made possible by you."Diana Khong, '22
"When I started the All for One Challenge, I wanted young alumni to see that giving makes a real impact. By providing Diana with a scholarship, we've shown how much we can accomplish together. Thank you for being a part of this experience."
Sunaina Sinha, '03, MS '04
Our All for One Challenger is Sunaina Sinha, '03, MS '04, the founder and managing partner of private equity firm Cebile Capital.
At Stanford, Sunaina was a Mayfield Fellow, received her bachelor's and master's degrees in engineering, and got bitten by the entrepreneurial bug. She credits that partly to her classes in entrepreneurship, and partly to meaningful mentors in the School of Engineering.
"Stanford changed the trajectory of my life, and that's why I want to give back," said Sunaina.
Sunaina wants more young alums to know how it feels to give back to Stanford.
"I want others to see that giving makes a real impact. We all want to know where our dollars are going, and the ability to make a difference for someone who can't otherwise afford Stanford is exciting and fulfilling," she said. "It's hard to find scale and impact in giving in your life, but this challenge is a way to get both."
