Company Description

The UCSF Foundation, established in 1982, is the giving, receiving and investing arm of the University of California, San Francisco. As the UCSF receives a diminishing portion—less than 8% in 2010—of its operating budget from state appropriations, UCSF relies increasingly on philanthropic support to continue its work locally, nationally and internationally. Through the leadership, guidance and generosity of the Foundation Board of Directors and other volunteer leaders and donors, the Foundation helps provide the margin of excellence that distinguishes UCSF’s schools and hospitals. The UCSF Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, who serve as advocates for and ambassadors to UCSF. The Foundation’s daily operations are administered by UCSF’s Office of Development and Alumni Relations, which is responsible for garnering private support and fostering communication and campus outreach efforts to UCSF donors, alumni and other constituents.
