The Arkansas Children’s Hospital Auxiliary has championed children for 53 years in the pursuit of a healthier tomorrow for all children. Gifts to the Auxiliary support critical programs, research initiatives and emergency and trauma support services like the David M. Clark Center for Safe and Healthy Children (pictured above).

Founded in 1967, the ACH Auxiliary serves patients and families through fundraising and service projects. More than 500 members support funding initiatives like child maltreatment programs at the David M. Clark Center for Safe and Healthy Children, research at Arkansas Children’s Research Institute and improvements to the patient and family experience by supporting the Comfort Foods, Good Mourning and Palliative Care programs. In 2019-2020, the ACH Auxiliary raised $1.5 million for Arkansas Children’s Hospital.


The ACH Auxiliary raises funds through special events and projects, as well as annual membership dues. Out of an abundance of caution, the ACH Auxiliary is shifting the Race for a Healthier Tomorrow to a virtual, statewide event on Saturday, Nov. 7. Please visit to learn more about the status of upcoming events.


There are many ways you can support the ACH Auxiliary. You can become a member online at, organize a fundraising team for the Race For a Healthier Tomorrow or send a gift to a patient by calling the Playaway gift shop at 501.261.6732. Your gifts provide a better today and a healthier tomorrow for the children of Arkansas.
