How to Give

Let us guide you through the process of making a gift to USF. There are many ways to support the university, and whether you are interested in giving online, making a gift of stock to USF or exploring other options, we have the information you need here.


Give online today. Make a gift


Call (415) 422-6638 to make a one-time donation or to set up a recurring gift on your credit card. A recurring gift can increase the impact of your donation by allowing you to make a more significant gift over time. Recurring credit card gifts are available in any amount and on whatever schedule is most convenient for you.


Checks made payable to the University of San Francisco can be mailed to:

University of San Francisco
P.O. Box 45363
San Francisco, CA 94145-0363

Please indicate specific designations on the check’s memo line or in a cover letter.

Matching Gifts

When you make a gift to USF that is matched by your employer, it doubles the impact of your gift. Three simple steps help ensure your donation qualifies for a match:

First, make sure your employer offers matching gifts and be aware of any restrictions by checking with your employer's Human Resources staff.

Second, if your employer requires a written form, complete it and send it with your gift to USF c/o Ruby Wong, USF Development Services, First Floor, Lone Mountain Rossi Wing, University of San Francisco, 2130 Fulton Street, San Francisco, CA 94117.

Lastly, make sure the amount and designation of your gift qualify for matching. Some gifts, like donations to athletic programs or gifts that yield tangible benefits to the donor, are not eligible. We are happy to answer your questions. Please call Ricah DeLeon at (415) 422-6569.

Stocks and Securities

Giving publicly traded securities to USF is an easy, tax-savvy way to support Jesuit higher education. When you give stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares that you have held for a year or longer, the IRS allows you to make your gift without recognizing capital gains on the appreciation. For more information, contact Louise Lucchesi at or (415) 422-6595. Stock transfer instructions

Bequests, Living Trusts, Gift Annuities

Many of our alumni and friends have invested in USF's future by making a gift through their wills or other long-term financial plans. We can help you plan a gift with tax benefits uniquely tailored to your financial plans. More information

Donor Advised Funds

If you’ve already benefited from the immediate tax deductions offered by donor-advised funds, please know that USF is an IRS-qualified public charity and is thus eligible to receive contributions from your gift fund. Please follow the instructions provided by your fund regarding minimum contribution, the process for recommending grants, and other considerations. Checks should be made payable to University of San Francisco and mailed to:

University of San Francisco
P.O. Box 45363

Day of the Dons

Each year in early April, we celebrate Day of the Dons at the University of San Francisco. It's our day to work together and give back to the university. Day of the Dons is a 24-hour online fundraising drive that is a fun way for alumni, parents, staff and faculty to support USF and make an impact for students today. Your gift — and all gifts — matter. And thanks to special bonus challenges, gifts that day have a bigger impact. Anyone can participate, and we encourage you to spread the word by encouraging others to visit USF Day of the Dons online.
