Donors and Volunteers

There are many opportunities to support UConn Health as we continue to provide excellent patient care, academic training to future medical professionals, and economic support to the State of Connecticut.


UConn Health depends on over 200 volunteers to help us provide patients, families, and visitors with the compassionate care and assistance that they need. The Volunteer Services Department is tasked with recruiting and training our much-needed volunteers, and we are always in need of volunteers with different skills. Because we are an academic medical center, this provides a variety of opportunities to fit personal schedules and individual preferences.

People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some, it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others, it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge. Whatever your reason, the Volunteer Services Department staff with find the right opportunity for you.
