Volunteer or Donate

VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System depends on the goodwill of our benefactors and volunteers who wish to give something back to America's heroes. Volunteers provide many important functions throughout the healthcare system and help make our patients' stay more enjoyable. Volunteers can perform a number of services, and a volunteer's talents are closely matched with one of our many assignments. Volunteers can choose to serve at either the University Drive or H.J. Heinz campus.

How To Become A Volunteer

Fill out an application. Print it, sign it, and mail it to the campus where you would like to volunteer. A voluntary specialist will contact you to schedule an interview.
