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.
