The backbone of our community
We stand behind those delivering on the promise of healthcare for all: the frontline workers at our city’s public hospital.
At the Foundation, we raise funds for Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center from our gracious donors. By working closely with the hospital to fund the most pressing needs with new ideas and innovations in care, we ensure every patient has the support they need to get well and stay well — with equity, dignity, and respect.
Learn more about how you can support those delivering on the promise of equitable healthcare for all at San Francisco’s public hospital.
We left our hearts in San Francisco.
The Hearts in San Francisco project debuted in 2004 with 131 heart sculptures created to benefit programs at ZSFG. These Hearts were auctioned and sold, raising critical funds for public health in San Francisco. Today, more than 460 Hearts have raised over $12 million to support on-the-ground innovation and compassionate care at ZSFG.
Support comes in all shapes and sizes. Find your perfect way to make a positive impact on the lives of thousands of grateful patients.
