COVID-19: how you can help

The County of Santa Clara is the largest provider of essential health services to vulnerable populations in our region.  It is also coordinating the distribution of donated personal protective equipment for healthcare workers to all area hospitals and other high-risk environments.

To support that effort, the Valley Medical Center Foundation has been designated as the official collection point for donations of dollars and materials to support frontline healthcare workers in Santa Clara County.  Your support is urgently needed as we prepare for a potential surge of COVID-19 cases in the fall that will collide with flu season. There are many ways to help.

Option 1: DONATE FUNDS

Like in any disaster, the best way to help is by making a financial contribution.  Donations to the COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund will allow the Valley Medical Center Foundation to respond to emergency needs from physicians, first responders and local public health officials  – sometimes within 30 minutes.  All contributions are tax deductible.  To give, click here now.
