Because of your support for the Ambassadors….

  • 58 families enjoyed a Mother’s Day celebration during their stay at the hospital
  • 200 families in need received gas cards, Greyound or Amtrak tickets so they could visit their hospitalized children
  • 500 children received an intervention from our full-time therapy dog and her Child Life Specialist handler to provide the kids with comfort and distraction from painful procedures
  • 1,250 children worked with a child life specialist to help prepare them for surgery and other medical procedures

Founded in 2014, the Ambassadors are a diverse group of volunteers who share a deep love and concern for children. Through philanthropy, volunteerism, and community outreach, our goal is to ensure that the needs of children and their families are provided for during their time at the hospital.

Ranked among the nation’s best in 10 specialties, UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital San Francisco draws patients from around the world. Many families uproot their lives to come to San Francisco so their child can received treatment, and the burden on a family is enormous.

Join the Ambassadors at the annual Kentucky Derby Party to raise awareness and support for our kids’ and families’ needs at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital San Francisco!
