Start Your Fundraiser

There are many ways to champion the people and causes that matter most to you.

You can create a personal fundraising page in honor of a loved one’s birthday, anniversary, or graduation. Or say “thank you” to a physician, nurse, or caregiver who made a difference in your life.

You can use your personal fundraising page to campaign for a cause, such as finding a cure for a rare disease or fueling the next generation of science breakthroughs.

Is a get-together more your style? Host an event to raise funds for the UCSF or UCSF Benioff Children's Hospitals program that means the most to you.

How To Bring Your Fundraiser Together

Creating your fundraiser is just the beginning. The real fun begins when you get your community involved. Tell everyone in your life about your campaign. More people means more success more quickly on

Don’t stop at a single email, text, phone call, or tweet. Follow up with friends and family members to let them know when you’ve reached important milestones in your fundraiser – and when their generosity can give you the extra boost you need.
