Family House is tax-exempt under Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code and exists purely because of private donations from caring people like you. No matter how you give, whether through workplace giving, an outright gift such as cash, a gift of stock, real estate or a planned gift, you will enjoy the satisfaction of helping to relieve the burden for families in a time of crisis. Your donation will be used wisely. Email us to request our Audited Financials Statement.

Why Donate?

By providing care, comfort and community, Family House eases the burdens families face when dealing with a child’s life-threatening illness. Parents bring children to UCSF Benoiff Children’s Hospital from all over the country and all over the world without means to pay for the high price of a hotel room in San Francisco during their child’s prolonged treatment lasting weeks or months. Direct support, such as gas cards, food supplies, diapers and other essentials come from gifts like yours.  Donations are essential in maintaining services and a healthy facility, providing a safe and comforting environment for our guests close to the hospital.

“Having a place to go and unwind after a stressful day at the hospital really makes a difference. If it wasn’t for Family House being free and open, we wouldn’t have been able to do what we needed for our baby girl. Thank you Family House and all who donate to it. It makes a world of difference.” -Krissy Cossio
