Volunteers are a large part of the UVMC fundraising effort. They raise $100,000 annually through the gift shop, the Lifeline program, personal donations and fundraising projects. These projects include bi-annual book sales and periodic uniform sales.
Since 1998, the UVMC Auxiliary has provided over $1.4 million in funding for equipment and special projects for the hospital.
