Make a Gift

Give to the UCSF Department of Radiation Oncology

What Your Gift Means to the UCSF Department of Radiation Oncology

You can help save lives, and improve cancer treatments for generations to come, by making a gift to the Department of Radiation Oncology or to support any of our faculty members.  A single new discovery in the biology of cancer, or in treatment technique, can transform cancer care for millions of patients.  Many of our team’s discoveries are now helping cancer patients at hospitals around the world, and our research program is expanding with the addition of brilliant new faculty.  Together with UCSF’s renowned medical research community, which has been home to five Nobel prize winners, we are untangling cancer at the molecular level.

We would love to have you with us on this exciting journey.  Please join us by making a gift to advance research in radiation oncology.  Any amount given is deeply appreciated. All donations are tax-deductible.

  • Annual and one-time gifts: Annual giving is the cornerstone of support to UCSF.  Annual gifts or pledges of any amount provide critically needed support for the university’s areas of greatest need and allow the department chair to seize unique opportunities and address unanticipated gaps in funding.

Partnership Opportunities

Your investment and partnership will allow our program to continue to make considerable strides in research, education, and faculty retention.

Research: Funding for clinical and basic research comes from external sources – federal and state government, foundations, and private gifts.  A true partnership with patient advocates has aided in the growth of resources and provides a focus and urgency to our research and care missions.  Endowed research funds support innovative science to develop more effective treatments and outcomes.

Education: Our rigorous fellowship program provides trainees with the tools to become the next generation of leaders. They learn to provide outstanding clinical care in the context of several diverse training venues throughout San Francisco while exploring long-term research interests at a world-class academic institution.

Faculty Recruitment/Retention: Endowments supporting faculty relieve them of the continual and distracting burden of applying for funding.  Faculty endowments are powerful recruiting tools for attracting and retaining the most talented and sought-after scientists, physicians and teachers.

Precision Cancer Medicine Building (PCMB): Opening in 2019 at UCSF Mission Bay, the PCMB’s integrated, patient-centered design will enable timely access to the most precise tests and treatments available. Uniting our solid tumor practices in one dedicated outpatient facility, PCMB will enable patients to receive next-generation care in one place, at one time, in a supportive environment.  Serving the Bay Area and beyond, PCMB’s six stories and 120 multidisciplinary rooms will be built through a combination of campus investment and philanthropy.  Naming opportunities are available at the $100,000 level and above.
