How do I help?
For the FIVE Fridays in June, we are asking you to GO CASUAL FOR KIDS. For all support staff, we ask you to donate $5 to wear jeans or $10 to wear both jeans and tennis shoes! For all Advisors and Managers, we encourage you to donate $75 for the five Fridays of casual dress or $15 each Friday you participate. You can donate online by visiting or bring your donation to your local Branch Manager Assistant.
How will UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital be using our donations?
Your tax-deductible gift will first go towards the purchase of cooling blankets for the NICU. Babies that don’t receive enough oxygen to their brain during and after birth can be at risk for brain damage. Cooling Blankets slow down the body’s metabolic rates which give the physician’s time to reduce or prevent brain damage. Below is an article on the vital role that Cooling Blankets play at our hospitals: https://www.ucsfbenioffchildrens.org/conditions/neonatal_hypoxic_ischemic_encephalopathy/treatment.html
Is my gift tax deductible?
Yes, and when you donate online, you will receive a thank you email with a receipt within 24 hours. Since the IRS does not require a receipt for charitable donations under $250, we do not automatically issue receipts for offline donations under that amount. If you didn't receive a receipt but would like one, please email Kristin.firstname.lastname@example.org.
