Giving Banner


For over 30 years, the philanthropic support from generous individuals, foundations and corporations has provided the Department of Ophthalmology with valuable resources for patient care, research, education and community service. The state of California provides less than 4% of our budget and therefore, we must rely on private gifts. As a friend of the Department of Ophthalmology, there are several giving options for those who wish to contribute to our tradition of excellence.
