Volunteer or donate

VA Tennessee Valley Healthcare System depends on the goodwill of our supporters. You can make a difference when you help us serve our Veterans.

Become a volunteer

Volunteers provide many important functions throughout the Medical Center 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. Give us a call at  (Nashville) or  (Murfreesboro) to learn what positions are available!

We will be happy to receive your application or discuss how you can help us in our mission to provide comfort and care to America's veterans.


Cash donations are used for the comfort and welfare of our veteran patients, including:

  • hygiene products
  • refreshment supplies
  • cable television for spinal cord injury patients
  • recreational activities

Non-cash contributions are used to make our patients' stay more enjoyable. Items which are accepted include:

  • magazines
  • coffee and cookies
  • new or gently used clothing
  • telephone cards

To make a cash or non-cash contribution, please contact the Tennessee Valley Healthcare System Voluntary Service.


E-Donate allows you to make an online donation to any VA hospital. The donation is made through a secure site set up by the Department of Treasury, so you can be assured your donation goes directly to the VA hospital to help care for Veterans. 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.
