Honorary and Memorial Giving

Honor a friend, recognize a caregiver, or remember a loved one by making a gift to UCSF. 


A memorial gift is a meaningful way to remember, honor, or celebrate someone important to you. Memorial gifts keep the memory of your loved one alive and have lasting impact. Families may request memorial gifts, in lieu of flowers, to be directed to support the UCSF program, physician, or center of their choosing. 

An honorary gift is a powerful way to express your love and make a difference. Honorary gifts can be made in honor of a birthday, anniversary, or graduation, or just to thank a special friend. You also can honor your physician, nurse, or caregiver, or show your gratitude for the care you or someone you love received at UCSF.

A personalized fundraising page is another wonderful way to honor the memory of a loved one or to raise funds for a special UCSF program, physician, or center. If you would like to rally your community, personal fundraising might be the right option for you.  

If you wish to be notified of gifts made in memory of your loved one, please contact us by email at [email protected] or phone (415) 476-3952.
