Organize an Event

Are you running a race, hosting a birthday soiree, or celebrating another special occasion? 

Turn your special event into a party with a purpose by donating event proceeds to UCSF.

Before you get started with the event-planning fun, we ask that you follow a few simple steps.

  1. Review our fundraising event guidelines and FAQs for crucial information about the event planning timeline, using the UCSF brand, and ensuring that you (and your guests) can receive a tax-deduction for your donations.

  2. Complete our fundraising event application to confirm that your event checks all the right boxes and get access to our event consultation services.
