Events and Volunteering

Every year, members of our Charlottesville community and beyond host and attend events that support UVA Health. Our board and hospital volunteers give invaluable time and expertise.

Your support changes the lives of our patients and their families, caregivers, students, and educators. To recognize your generosity and the impact you have on UVA Health, we've created a series of recognition societies. Each society offers special opportunities to members. To honor your gifts, we may also include your name in our various publications, or on permanent recognition pieces throughout UVA Health.
