The Power of Giving

The Valley Hospital Auxiliary was a major catalyst in the founding of the hospital, raising funds and establishing community support years before the hospital opened. Today's Auxiliary, which consists of members from many local communities, remains an integral part of hospital life.

Our Mission

The mission of The Valley Hospital Auxiliary is to:

  • Serve as community liaison for the hospital
  • Assist the hospital through a variety of traditional and non-traditional volunteer services
  • Raise funds for vital hospital programs

Our Pledge

Since its inception, the Auxiliary has helped serve local communities by raising funds for specific healthcare programs and services. To date, the Auxiliary has donated more than $18 million to Valley.

The Auxiliary’s current pledge of $3.1 million will go toward establishing the Pediatric Section of the Emergency Department in The “New” Valley Hospital and Valley Home Care’s endowment for Butterflies, a pediatric in-home palliative and hospice care program. 

Ready to support our pledge? Make a donation today.

Auxiliary Events

The Auxiliary’s events are always the talk of the town! In addition to having a great time, attendees contribute to the Auxiliary’s pledge to support the hospital.

Local branches of the Auxiliary also host fashion shows, guest speakers, raffles, theater trips and more.
