Our Auxiliary Boards

The Auxiliary Boards at Children’s Hospital Foundation play a vital role in fulfilling our mission. From their earliest inception—shortly after the original Children’s Hospital was founded in 1920—to the present, these active volunteers give generously of their time and talents to promote and advance the welfare of the Foundation and the children it serves.

All fundraising and advocacy efforts provided by our Auxiliary Boards—the Senior Board and Junior Board—benefit Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Senior Board

The Senior Board supports the Foundation through a variety of community fundraising events, such as the Words & Wisdom and the Change for Children Program.

Junior Board

Organized in 1933, the Junior Board of Children’s Hospital Foundation works to support the children served by Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU. The highlight of the Junior Board’s fundraising year is the annual Children’s Hospital Foundation Ball.
