Senior Board

Children’s Hospital Foundation is supported by two women’s auxiliary boards, including the Senior Board which is composed of 50 active members dedicated to furthering the Foundation’s mission.

The Senior Board organizes two annual fundraisers that focus on children supporting other children in their community: Words & Wisdom, a book and author event, and Change for Children, a school-based fundraising campaign.

The Change for Children Program

In 1999, the Senior Board started a school fundraising campaign called Wishing Well, which was primarily a penny fundraiser. As the program expanded over the years, the fundraiser was renamed "Change for Children" to better describe the annual program and the many different ways local school were helping children and families at Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU (CHoR). Since the program began, it has raised over $275,000 to support children at CHoR.
