Dean's Associates at UCSF

For over 150 years, UCSF has provided the highest quality education to generations of health science professionals. UCSF alumni have distinguished themselves as leaders, innovators, and care givers ― and share a remarkable commitment to ensuring UCSF excellence.

A significant portion of UCSF’s funding for the Schools of Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, and Pharmacy, and the Graduate Division, comes from the graduates and faculty of these programs. These annual gifts provide UCSF with dependable, major revenue that is vital to sustaining excellence and advancing new initiatives. 

In recognition of those who make UCSF their philanthropic priority, donors who give $1,000 or more annually are honored as Dean’s Associates in the UC San Francisco Giving Society.
