How to Donate

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have temporarily changed our donation guidelines, restricted items, and areas of urgent need. We are unable to accept on-site donations until further notice. Please consider donating through our Amazon wish list, mailing a gift card or making a financial donation to our Child Life Toy Fund.

1) Let us do the shopping for you

Your financial contribution allows our Child Life staff to purchase toys, books, crafts and games tailored to our patients’ needs based on age, diagnosis and hospital appropriateness. Donate online to the Child Life Toy Fund.

2) Donate a gift card

Gift cards provide our team with the flexibility to help meet the greatest needs of our patients and families. Useful and versatile options include: Amazon, Target, Costco, Walmart. Unfortunately, we cannot accept e-gift cards at this time.

Gift cards can mailed to us at the following address:
Attn: Elyse Cann
UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals Foundation
2201 Broadway, Suite 600
Oakland, California 94612

3) Fill your shopping cart with smiles

Wondering what our young patients need most? We have developed Amazon wish lists of items needed throughout our two hospital campuses.
