Founded in December 2014, the Ambassadors for UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital San Francisco is a diverse group of volunteers who share a deep love and concern for children. Through personal philanthropy, hosting events, and volunteering, our goal is to ensure that the needs of children and their families are provided for during their time at the hospital.
Philanthropy: Ambassadors are deeply committed to supporting the hospital through philanthropy. The Ambassadors fund supports patients and their families with crucial services that are not covered by medical insurance, including family support programs, child life specialists, creative arts, bereavement care, and social service needs.
Events: We raise additional funds and awareness for the hospital with our signature Kentucky Derby Party, as well as through several smaller fundraisers throughout the year. View photos from our previous events!
Volunteering: We create and participate in unique opportunities to enhance the patient experience at the hospital. Events have included Teen Prom, Mother’s Day brunch, Father’s Day Giants outing, and a football kickoff party.
We require a minimum annual donation of $250, as well as a commitment to one volunteer opportunity per year. We encourage new members to take a private tour of the hospital to see, first-hand, the groundbreaking work being done every day. All members receive exclusive access to educational events and hospital volunteering opportunities, as well as early bird access to our events.
