UCLA Health Auxiliary: Membership & Donations

If you are looking for a way to become involved in the UCLA Health Community, consider joining the Auxiliary.

Involvement Opportunities

There are many opportunities to get involved with the Auxiliary.  You can volunteer in the Auxiliary shops to raise funds for patient aid, programs and projects; work with the Adopt-A-Family Committee to bring holiday cheer to patients and their families; or serve on the executive committee where positions range from Grant Evaluations to Publicity.  The Auxiliary provides the opportunity for you to make a difference in the UCLA Health Community. 

Benefits of Membership

While an Auxiliary membership includes participating in many activities, it also provides the opportunity to expand your social circle; meet and work with people who are passionate about UCLA medicine and patients; and learn about cutting-edge medicine from UCLA doctors and scientists.  Membership includes monthly meetings; quarterly excursions and cultural events; the Fall Volunteer Luncheon; subscription to the quarterly newsletter and the Spring Awards Luncheon.  Anyone is invited to join and the basic membership is $50.
