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 Arkansas Children’s Hospital Auxiliary serves patients and families through fundraising and service projects. More than 500 members support funding initiatives that include creating purposeful healing spaces designed for patients and their families, contributing to the Arkansas Children’s Research Institute and supporting programs that provide emotional support, including Good Mourning, Palliative Care and Comfort Foods.


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. Last year the Auxiliary raised $1.2 million for Arkansas Children’s Hospital.


There are many ways to get involved in the ACH Auxiliary. You can serve meals in the hospital, work in the Playaway Gift Shop, organize a race team, volunteer for events, mentor an ACHiever — the sky’s the limit. Women of all ages and backgrounds are welcome. Visit to join today.
