For Foundations

UCSF aspires to make the world a healthier place for all. We are committed to pursuing the grand challenges: decoding life to improve health, leveraging discovery to transform patient care, and partnering with others to achieve health equity.

Accelerate Your Mission

UCSF’s Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations works with private professional foundations to help them achieve their goals. We help foundations identify work being pursued at the University and in our hospitals that furthers their missions, addressing issues that are of shared concern.

Connect to UCSF Programs and People

We help connect foundations to faculty members, projects, and programs of interest; arrange meetings with faculty leaders; direct announcements of requests for proposals; facilitate reporting; provide information about University funding guidelines; and navigate UCSF’s schools, divisions, personnel, and policies for our foundation colleagues.

Achieve More Together

Foundation support fills a crucial gap in the funding ecosystem. Together, we can redefine what is possible in health and health care on a regional, national, and global scale. Your partnership is essential to advancing our mission.
