Volunteer or Donate
Tuscaloosa VAMC depends on the goodwill of our benefactors and volunteers who wish to give something back to America's Veterans.
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.
To volunteer, call or visit the Tuscaloosa VAMC Voluntary Service Office. 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.

Examples of donations
New Service! E-Donate
Simple. Speedy. Safe. The new E-Donate service now available on-line 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 funds 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 Tuscaloosa VA Medical Center goes to programs that support veterans like recreational therapy. The actual donation is made through a secure site at the Department of Treasury. 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, debit card, etc.).
