About Community and Government Relations

The CGR staff is committed to fostering a spirit of honest communication, mutual understanding, and creative collaboration with the people whose neighborhoods and concerns we share.
Benefits for Nonprofit Organizations
UCSF often has surplus items in its warehouse including office furniture, file cabinets, computers, printers, and more. The University gives local nonprofits a chance to obtain these items free of charge.
UCSF also co-sponsors the use of conference facilities for San Francisco nonprofit organizations at the Parnassus Heights, and Mission Bay campuses. These subsidies offer local nonprofit groups access to our facilities for meetings, conferences, and other events at reduced cost. Annual subsidies are limited and are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
Long Range Development Plan
|UCSF’s Long Range Development Plan (LRDP), created in 1996, was designed to guide the university’s physical development through 2012. UCSF is now embarking on its next LRDP, which has an expected planning horizon through the year 2030. Community involvement is a key facet of this planning process.|
