The recipient of the Lifetime Legacy Award, Darlene Shiley is a visionary leader whose philanthropy has transformed lives here in San Diego and across the country. Shiley’s wide-ranging philanthropic interests are the result of a fierce passion for helping others — a passion she shared with her late husband, Donald. This has led to a truly remarkable legacy of impact at UC San Diego.
More than 30 years ago, Darlene and Donald Shiley made a transformational gift to establish the internationally recognized Shiley Eye Institute at UC San Diego Health. In addition to longstanding support for Shiley Eye Institute, Shiley has made significant and transformational gifts to UC San Diego Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center at UC San Diego Health, undergraduate scholarships and other programs across campus.
Shiley has also played a vital role in steering the campus’s growth through her service on boards and committees across campus. Meanwhile, her leadership in San Diego and nationwide reflects her enthusiasm and dedication to improving the lives of others, whether through access to world-class health care, leading-edge education, public broadcasting or the arts.
“With their visionary philanthropy, Darlene and Donald Shiley helped position UC San Diego as a global hub for world-class eye care with the establishment of what is now the Shiley Eye Institute,” said Chancellor Khosla. “We are so grateful to Darlene for continuing a decades-long legacy of generosity and support for UC San Diego, enabling our renowned researchers and physicians to advance innovative discovery and clinical care to help patients from around the world.”
