Ways to Give

There are many different ways that you can donate to help neighbors in need of access to healthcare.

The Charlottesville Free Clinic is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Contributions to the CFC are tax-deductible as allowed by law.  Our tax ID number is 54-1610405.


434-295-8965 or development@cvillefreeclinic.org.

You may mail your check or credit card information using this form.

If you have owned the stock for more than a year and the value has appreciated, donating stock shares directly to the Free Clinic accomplishes two purposes: you will support the CFC and you will avoid paying the capital gains tax on the stock which you would have been responsible for if you have sold the stock, kept the money, and written a check to the CFC.

Tribute Gifts
Honoring or memorializing someone with a donation to the CFC is a meaningful way to recognize the impact that person has had on your life.

Upon receipt of memorial and honorarium gifts, the CFC will send a note to the recipient if the donor provides an address. For gifts that come directly to the CFC at your suggestion, we will provide you with the donor’s name and contact information so you can acknowledge the gift.

Matching Gifts
Many employers match a portion or all of their employees’ charitable donations. If you provide us with information about your employer’s matching gift program, we are happy to complete any necessary paperwork.

UVA and State Employees: donate through the Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign (CVC) #03739
The CVC is an annual charitable giving campaign for employees of the Commonwealth of Virginia including colleges and universities.

Planned Giving
Many people decide to leave gifts to charity in their will. The Charlottesville Free Clinic welcomes these gifts from bequests, life insurance policies, retirement plans, and appreciated securities. If you would like to discuss this option, please contact us at 434-295-8965 or talk with your legal council.

Accept Referrals
If you are interested in accepting CFC referrals to your primary care or specialized medical practice by providing free or reduced-fee services for CFC patients please contact CFC Director of Medical Clinic Operations Meghan Hinger at 434-295-0008 or meghan@cvillefreeclinic.org. If you have a dental practice and would to see CFC patients, contact Shell Duff at 434-972-6233 or shell@cvillefreeclinic.org.

Donate Dinner through Volunteer Vittles
Since many of our evening volunteers come to the clinic to start their shifts straight from their daytime jobs or school and don’t have time to eat dinner, the CFC provides dinners donated by local restaurants, caterers, civic groups and individuals. If you are interested in donating a dinner for our volunteers, contact Rosemary Miller at development@cvillefreeclinic.org.

Medical and Dental Supplies
We have very limited storage space, so we do not accept donations of medical or dental supplies, or except on a very limited basis. The MERCI Program at UVA accepts unused medical supplies. To find out more information, visit http://corporate.uvahealth.com/community/recycling/merci. In compliance with Virginia state law, the CFC cannot accept any donations of medications.
