General Information

One of the most precious gifts you can give is that of your time.  

At Rady Children’s, we truly value our volunteers. On any given day, we rely on our volunteers to help us deliver the world-class care our patients and families deserve. From playing games with patients in the activity rooms to providing support for our community events – and everything in between – it is our volunteers who make all the difference!

Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary brings members from our community together for local and citywide events, making a significant difference in programs, services and equipment available at the Hospital.   

Hospital Volunteers get special training – and many ways to help in a variety of departments, from administrative tasks to volunteering in our playrooms. 

Events offer another way to help! We need volunteers throughout the year at a wide range of fundraising events. It’s not a big time commitment, but you can make a big difference. 

Our canine volunteers help ease our patients’ anxiety and promote shorter recovery times.
