The Yale New Haven Hospital Auxiliary is a diverse and dynamic group of women and men who devote their precious free time to making a meaningful contribution. Our dedicated group of volunteers routinely develop initiatives that help support the hospital's mission.
There are few things as satisfying as being a member of the Yale New Haven Hospital Auxiliary. Your work doesn’t just benefit the hospital, but the entire community that depends upon us.
As a member, you can be as active as your schedule allows. You can join committees or participate in educational lectures, social activities and philanthropic endeavors. New members are always welcome and contributions in any amount are sincerely appreciated.
Funds received by the Auxiliary allow us to serve patients, families and the community in many different areas. We provide grants to YNHH departments for help and support that is not included in the hospital’s budget. We offer scholarships to area students who are planning to pursue a career in a health-related profession. We educate the public on current health and wellness topics through free lectures and other outreach programs. And through our Toy Closet Program, we provide new toys to pediatric inpatients at Yale New Haven Children's Hospital and outpatients at locations both within and outside the Children's Hospital.
