UCSF Partners in Care

The UCSF Medical Center Auxiliary is a volunteer, non-profit organization that raises funds for much-needed patient amenities. The auxiliary's goal is to help provide the highest level of care and compassion to patients and support UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital at all locations — including hospitals and clinics at Mission Bay, Mount Zion and Parnassus.

With the help of donors and friends, the auxiliary raises funds for patient services and amenities including its Special Wishes Program that purchases items and services that doctors, nurses and hospital staff identify to help alleviate the stress, pain and confinement that patients experience.

Donations have provided teddy bears for children undergoing surgery, televisions, artwork for hallways and patient rooms, funding for the palliative care program called Comfort Care, waiting room renovations, sleep chairs for families and visitors, toys and a fund to assist families who have lost a child or loved one.

Make A Donation

The auxiliary depends on the support and generosity of friends. Individuals, corporations and foundations contribute to our "Friends" annual giving program, making a memorial or donation in honor of a friend or significant occasion. All donations to this campaign — 100 percent of the funds raised — goes to help patients and their families.
