The UCSF Foundation is the giving, receiving and investing arm of the University of California, San Francisco. As the University receives a diminishing portion of its operating budget from state appropriations, UCSF relies increasingly on philanthropic support to continue its work locally, nationally and internationally and to provide the margin of excellence that distinguishes UCSF’s schools and hospitals.

Through the leadership, guidance and generosity of the Foundation Board of Directors and other donors and volunteer leaders, the Foundation helps ensure that UCSF remains among the finest academic, research and clinical care institutions worldwide.

When you donate to UCSF, you are helping to advance medicine and drive scientific breakthroughs to create a healthier world.
