What are the RCH Auxiliaries?
The RCH is supported by a vibrant and dedicated network of Auxiliary groups. Made up of 60 Auxiliary groups and around 1,000 volunteers from across Victoria, the RCH Auxiliaries are a fundraising force to be reckoned with.
Governed by the Auxiliaries Executive Committee the RCH Auxiliaries have been raising funds for the hospital since 1922 under the mission: “One team working towards one goal – making sick kids better.”
The RCH Auxiliaries raise funds in a myriad ways for many special causes. The funds raised go to a variety of projects and initiatives in line with Auxiliary’s personal connections to the RCH and the hospital’s priorities in the areas of research, leadership and training, equipment and technology and patient and family centred care.
