Investigating, Innovating, Improving Human Lives

UCSF Foundation

Unlike its fellow University of California campuses, the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) does not offer admission to undergraduate students. Instead, this specialized university has become a sought-after destination for students pursuing one of its 11 master's programs or 19 PhD programs. UCSF has four professional schools in nursing, medicine, dentistry, and pharmacy, and the UCSF Medical Center operates three clinical sites in Northern California at Parnassus, Mount Zion, and Mission Bay. The university is also the second-largest employer in the San Francisco area. UCSF's leadership in academic programs, research, and medicine are guided by a dedication to efficient innovation.

The UCSF Foundation oversees donations from alumni, corporations, and other foundations, ensuring that donors' wishes are honored in the use of gifts, and it manages donated assets through the UCSF Foundation Investment Company. In fiscal year 2023, the USCF Foundation received more than $630 million from nearly 36,000 donors.
