Giving Guide: Arkansas Children's Hospital Auxiliary

Giving Guide: Arkansas Children's Hospital Auxiliary
The ACH Auxiliary is working to improve the health and well-being of children in our state and around the region by providing healing spaces for patients and their families. Coordinated spaces designed specifically for families provide a space to connect with the outdoors, a sense of control during a stressful situation and a retreat from the walls of the hospital.



Founded in 1967, the ACH Auxiliary serves patients and families through fundraising and service projects. More than 500 members support funding initiatives that improve patient experience by creating outdoor spaces, contributing to the Arkansas Children’s Research Institute and supporting programs that provide emotional support, including Good Mourning, Palliative Care and Comfort Foods. In 2018-2019, the ACH Auxiliary raised a historic $1.54 million for Arkansas Children’s Hospital.


The ACH Auxiliary’s efforts are funded by special events and projects, as well as annual membership dues. Fundraising efforts include Miracle Ball, Arkansas à la Carte, Race for a Healthier Tomorrow, the ACHiever program, Playaway Gift Shop and the Holiday Card Project.


There are many ways to get involved in the ACH Auxiliary. You can do the following:

Serve meals in the hospital

Work in the Playaway Gift Shop

Organize a race team

Volunteer for events

The sky’s the limit. Visit to join today. People of all ages and backgrounds are welcome.
