COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Donations

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, many in our UCSF and Bay Area communities have inquired about how they can help support our response and address the urgent needs of our patients. For ways you can support our efforts during this critical time, please visit the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources site. For those considering a gift to support UCSF’s COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Response Fund, please visit the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) gift site.

Processing of Financial Gifts

For departments receiving financial gifts in the form of checks, please deposit checks to the gift lockbox. Instructions for submitting gifts to the lockbox can be found on the Gift & Foundation Accounting page on the Controller’s Office website.

In-Kind Receipt Requests

For in-kind donation receipts and questions, excluding food donations, please contact Covina Tonel, UCSF Gift Administration at [email protected]. Include the following details in your request:

  • description and amount of item(s) donated,
  • donor name, and
  • approximate dollar value of item(s) donated.

Food Donations

We greatly appreciate the outpouring of consideration for our frontline staff. As you can imagine, our operations are heavily impacted. Due to the logistics around receiving, storage and distribution, UCSF is not accepting food donations at this time. We encourage anyone wishing to make food donations to consider helping the broader community who may be food insecure including the elderly who may be home-bound.

If you have questions, contact Janet Jones, UCSF Gift & Foundation Accounting at [email protected].
