Volunteer or Donate

New service! E-Donate

Simple. Speedy. Safe. The new E-Donate service now available online allows community members who wish to give back to Veterans a quick, safe way to pledge their support. Through E-Donate, donors can select from a number of accounts at the medical center they wish to donate to. U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs administrative costs are appropriated so donors can be 100 percent certain their donations will go directly to the funds and Veteran patients they select.
Donated money at the VA Caribbean Healthcare System Medical Center goes to Veterans Outreach, OIF/OEF/OND Welcome Home, Homeless Veterans and other Patient Centered Inciatives which main focus is to care for Veterans. The actual donation is made through a secure site at the Department of Treasury’s www.pay.gov. A minimum of $5 is required for online donation and you can donate by any electronic means commonly used on the Internet today (i.e. credit card or debit card). You choose the medical center, you choose the amount, and you choose from available options how your money will support local Veterans. Donate using E-Donate Badge below.


VA Caribbean Healthcare System depends on the goodwill of our benefactors and volunteers who wish to give something back to America's heroes residing in Puerto Rico, St. Thomas and St. Croix United States Virgin Islands.


Volunteers provide many important functions throughout the Medical Center and help make our patients' stay more enjoyable. Volunteers are easy to identify these wear visible blue or pink jackets and their photo identification badges ease their identification. They also perform a number of services, and a volunteer's talents are closely matched with one of our many assignments. Volunteers also serve in Arecibo, Guayama, St. Thomas, St. Croix CBOC's and Mayagüez, Ponce, OPC as well.
