Coachella Valley Volunteers in Medicine – The Valleys Only Free Health Center – 10 Year Celebration

We had some big plans to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Coachella Valley Volunteers in Medicine in the community. With the COVID-19 virus hindering our plans to gather, we are reaching out to you, our loyal supporters, asking you to help us commemorate this milestone.

Help us build our Founder’s Plaza! The front area outside the clinic has been laid with brick and a recognition plaque will be placed on the clinic building to recognize our founders. 6” x 12” bricks are available for just $100 and allow for up to 3 lines of text to recognize a person, event or other sentiment you desire. Click here for more information on how to purchase!
Become a member of our Monthly Giving Program. By choosing to give a regular monthly donation of any amount, with other monthly donors you will be helping us to achieve an ongoing stream of funding to support all of our programs and help meet our needs. To start your recurring donation, CLICK HERE!
Make a one-time donation in support and recognition of our 10th Anniversary! You can choose to honor one of our founders, another clinic volunteer, or even a friend or family member. If the donation is make in honor of someone, we will send them a special note informing them of your donation (without indicating the amount).
Tell a friend about VIM! Many of our loyal donors and volunteers became aware of our mission from a friend. Help us spread the word about the Valley’s only no-charge clinic by sharing this letter with them, or using the information below to talk about CVVIM.
We understand if you are not able to make a financial donation at this time, and we most sincerely appreciate your prior support of your time and treasures. You can still support us by becoming a friend and liking us on Facebook; an excellent way to stay in touch and an opportunity that demonstrates community support to others.

In our Valley, the person CVVIM cares for could be your waiter at your favorite restaurant, the part-time clerk who bags your groceries, or your pool man or gardener. There are so many in our community that benefit from the medical care we provide, there are so many in need.

And don’t forget, we pay for all lab work, x-rays, and imaging services necessary for diagnosis, treatment and management of disease and illness. An average of 3,100 patient care visits are provided annually to 1,000 patients: 34,000+ visits since opening in 2010. 1,500+/- additional contacts are provided each year for education, case management, homeless medical outreach, health navigator services and community referrals.

We receive no reimbursement from any private or governmental source for the services we provide. Our ability to provide service is solely dependent upon the support of our volunteer clinicians and support staff, numerous foundations, local business and philanthropic organizations, and individuals like you, our donors.

Your support is making a meaningful difference to Coachella Valley residents in need. Thank you!

Please stay healthy and safe
