Legacy Gift Planning

A healthy San Francisco can be your legacy.

It’s possible to make an enormous—and lasting—impact on public health. By including the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation in your legacy gift and estate plans, you can have a positive effect on your community for generations to come.

An investment in public health and safety

When you support one of the country’s finest public hospitals, a state-of-the-art facility that serves an astonishing 20% of all San Franciscans, your commitment will help provide equitable, exceptional care for all of our neighbors, including the most vulnerable among us, and enable us to face any emergency as the city’s only Level 1 Trauma Center.

A few minutes of your time could change thousands of lives.

A quick conversation or a simple form may be all that you need to make a plan to provide your neighbors with ongoing, equitable access to the best possible care. Including a provision in your will or other estate plans will support patient care advancements, pioneering medical research, and teaching initiatives throughout the hospital. The future holds great promise in medical advances, and there’s no limit to what your gift might accomplish.


If you have already provided for Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital in your will, or if you plan to do so, please contact Allison Arden at so that we can show our appreciation and better plan for the future.
