UCSF Giving Societies and Academies

UCSF has several ways for donors to engage in the UCSF community. Below are a few of the giving societies and other organizations we’ve created that bring UCSF advocates together – with one goal in mind – to join us in our mission of advancing health worldwide.

UC San Francisco Society

The UC San Francisco Society recognizes donors’ annual gifts to any area of UCSF including education, research, and patient care. For information on the different membership levels, please visit Societies.

UCSF Heritage Circle

The UCSF Heritage Circle recognizes donors who have made gifts to UCSF through their estate plans – either by making a bequest or by establishing a life income gift such as a charitable gift annuity or a charitable remainder trust. Learn more about membership of this prestigious group today.

Chancellor’s Circle

The Chancellor's Circle is a group of volunteer leaders and donors whose interests and talents are wide-ranging. Members include key Bay Area business and community leaders. Spearheaded by UCSF Foundation Board members, Amy McKnight and John Lowenberg, Jr., the Circle seeks to recruit others who support UCSF across all areas and programs. Information on membership and future Circle events can be found on the Chancellor Circle page.

UCSF Neurosciences Academy

The UCSF Neurosciences Academy is where curious people fascinated by neurosciences converge to learn about new discoveries and treatments from the remarkable clinicians and scientists behind them. Academy members broaden UCSF’s base of support for groundbreaking research and clinical care across the neurosciences – including psychiatry, neurology, and neurosurgery – to solve the most complex challenges of the brain. Ultimately, the goal of the Neurosciences Academy is to sustain UCSF’s global excellence in the field and make sure that the Bay Area and the citizens of the world benefit from its success.
