VCU Medical Center Auxiliary
The VCU Medical Center Auxiliary provides support to VCU Medical Center’s patients, visitors and staff through service, fundraising and other activities. We also offer an inviting and supportive environment to encourage volunteers in their service.
The Auxiliary is affiliated with the medical center’s Volunteer Services, which coordinates volunteer activities for both adults and students. We welcome current and new volunteers to attend meetings held throughout the year to provide fellowship and education for members.
Funds are raised through the Three Bears Gift Shop, vendor sales and special events like our Dancing With the Richmond Stars competition. At holiday time, the Auxiliary sponsors the Love Light Tree, offering a special way for donors to honor or remember a loved one. Proceeds from the Love Light Tree benefit the programs and services at VCU Medical Center.
Each year, the VCU Medical Center Auxiliary generously funds more than 50 projects that bring incredible value to VCU Medical Center. These projects range from initiatives to improve the comfort of our patients to supporting and educating our fellow team members. Applicants are encouraged to apply if there is a project that would benefit one of the medical center’s strategic initiatives, including:
- Patient satisfaction and customer service
- Establishing a culture of safety and excellence
- Commitment to adequate and timely service
- Transformation through information technology service
- Financial performance
- Workforce development
- Strategic innovations
- Community partnerships
For the 2019 Auxiliary Grant cycle, the VCU Medical Center Auxiliary funded 71 team member-driven grants with a contribution of $243,000. Click here for a list of funded projects.
