Annual Giving

Annual giving is the cornerstone of support to UCSF. Thousands of generous alumni and friends contribute each year to UCSF through annual gifts. The UCSF Annual Fund provides critically needed support for the University’s areas of greatest need and allows the University to seize unique opportunities and address unanticipated needs.

Many donors choose to make annual gifts to specific areas that have deep, personal significance, such as clinical and research programs and academic support. Others prefer to make gifts to UCSF that give University leadership flexibility to deploy resources where they are needed most. However you choose to direct your annual gift, it will help UCSF improve the health of people around the globe.
