Virtual Auxiliaries Portfolio Lead

The Royal Children's Hospital Foundation


The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) is supported by a vibrant and dedicated network of Auxiliary groups. Today, there are around 60 Auxiliary groups made of up 1,000 volunteers from right across Victoria. Governed by the Auxiliaries Executive Committee (AEC), the RCH Auxiliaries have been raising funds for the hospital since 1922 under the mission: “One team working towards one goal – making sick kids better.” The RCH Auxiliaries raise funds in a myriad ways for many special causes. The funds raised support a variety of projects and initiatives in line with an Auxiliary’s personal connection to the RCH and the hospital’s priorities in the areas of research, leadership and training, equipment and technology and patient and family centred care.

The Role

The AEC is seeking to create new, virtual Auxiliaries, providing an opportunity for individuals and groups to support the RCH remotely. The volunteer position of the Virtual Auxiliaries Portfolio Lead will manage the development of these new Virtual Auxiliaries and act as a consultant to the AEC. The role centres on communicating externally and building relationships with the next generation of fundraisers. The Virtual Auxiliaries Portfolio Lead will work closely with the President of Auxiliaries and the Fundraising Manager at the RCH Foundation.
