    Dear Members of the UCSF Community,

    The new year has brought us extraordinary news: We have received a $500 million gift – the largest in our history – in the name of one of our most cherished friends, the late Helen Diller.

    The Helen Diller Foundation granted these funds in honor and remembrance of Helen’s lifelong dedication to education and in later years, to health science. The gift is one of the largest ever made to a U.S. university, and we are humbled and honored to receive it.
