Donate Toys, Goods, and Supplies

Our Annual Toy Drive has gone virtual! Project Cheer Virtual Toy Drive

Project Cheer Virtual Toy Drive: This year Covid restrictions prohibit the donation of toys to UCSF Benioff Children's Hospitals, but we can still help bring the holiday spirit to patients and families! We are excited to launch a crowdfunding campaign, allowing everyone to donate or start their own fundraising pages:  

Amazon Wish ListOur Amazon wish list is also a great option to share for the holidays and year-round. Your donation of new toys and other items help patients and families when they need it most.

More information about: Donating Goods

Due to infection control policies, all donated items must be brand new. If you have gently used items to donate, please consider a donation to the Bambino Thrift Shop, a store whose proceeds go directly to benefit of the children receiving care at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland.

Plan a Fundraiser

Each year, many generous and dedicated people host fundraisers to benefit UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals.
