Honor and Memorial Giving

A memorial gift is a meaningful way to remember, honor, or celebrate someone important to you. 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.

When you make your gift, please include the name of the individual you are memorializing or honoring. We can also notify the family or individual of your gift if you provide us with their name and address. UCSF Fresno will not share the amount of the contribution.

Matching Gifts
Find out if your company offers a matching gifts program and double (or even triple) the impact of your gift to UCSF.

Donor-Advised Funds
Like a savings account for charitable giving, donor-advised funds give you the freedom to make fund contributions whenever you like and recommend specific grants to UCSF only when you are ready.

Whether you contribute to an established endowment or create a new named endowed fund, your gift provides a reliable source of funds to advance UCSF Fresno’s mission and the work of our researchers, faculty, and students. Learn more about endowment giving.

Gift Planning
Your legacy begins with careful planning, and there are many ways you can help advance health worldwide by including UCSF in your estate plan. When making a “planned gift,” you continue to use or benefit from your asset now and know you are supporting UCSF in the future.
