Volunteer with us

You are crucial to our mission

The University Hospital Foundation believes in the power of generosity to seek bold solutions for seemingly insurmountable health conditions, and raises funds to advance patient care, research and healthcare innovation at the University of Alberta Hospital, the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute and the Kaye Edmonton Clinic. We are grateful to our dedicated volunteers who share their time and talents to advance our mission.

Why volunteer with us?

When you volunteer for the University Hospital Foundation you are joining a team that values working together to advance the health of Albertans.

When it comes to making a difference, our volunteers are critical to advancing excellence at the University of Alberta Hospital site – from our dedicated Board Members, and the volunteers who help ensure our operations run smoothly, to the 2,000 volunteers who bring the Festival of Trees to life each year, and the volunteers who make our community events successful.

Volunteers are the heart and soul of what we do.
