UVA in the Community

We proudly support organizations in central Virginia that promote health and happiness in our smallest patients.

Children's Health Initiatives

This organization provides home visits from nurses and family support workers to promote children's healthcare for low-income, at-risk families.

Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign

Each fall our employees join forces with our academic counterparts to pledge money from each payroll check in support of over 500 charities in our region, many with a focus on children. Our employees have pledged more than $8.7 million to our local and regional charities over the past 10 years.

This program teaches kindergarten through 5th graders about healthy nutrition and lifestyle habits.

Hospice of the Piedmont Journeys Program

The loss of a family member and its long-term impact on children is the focus of our support of this program, where nationally recognized storytellers bring books to life that depict the journey and recovery from a loss to help kids grieve.
