Legacy Giving

Thank you to the members of the Heritage Society for Legacy Giving

In 1992, the board of trustees established the Heritage Society to honor those who have included San Francisco University High School in their estate plans and to encourage others to consider this option. Planned gifts and bequests provide support that endures for future generations of students and ensures the continued excellence of the UHS curriculum. 

Jeanne Miller '79

Jeanne Miller '79 UHS has been a part of my family since 1977. I came to University as a junior from Washington High School, and I was in the school's third graduating class. After I graduated, my mother went to work in the business office at UHS and stayed for approximately 20 years. Through my mom’s encouragement, I remained in contact with many of my teachers including Diane Schroeder and Tucker Hiatt which lead to me joining the Alumni Council. Past alumni council chairs, Heidi Philbrick Schell '81, Bradley Solomon '81, P '16, '20 and Tom Battat '81, P '17, '19 encouraged me to accept the invitation to become president of the Alumni Association which I did from 1997-1999 and with co-president Sarah Van Ness '88 from 1999-2001. I am still an actively engaged alumna, attend events regularly, and I have made many close friends with alums who I met after graduation.

I made the decision to include UHS in my will in 1999, when I was diagnosed with Stage III breast cancer. I had a UHS team behind me as several of my doctors were UHS parents, and one would be a future parent. Before my stem cell transplant, UCSF suggested I invite friends to donate blood for post-transplant infusions. So many UHS alumni, faculty and trustees donated blood on my behalf that the hospital had an enormous surplus! I was happy to be able to donate it back to the blood bank. I've been cancer-free for 21 years. Thank you to all the entire UHS community that cared for me and donated blood on my behalf!
