Volunteer or Donate
Every day across VISN 4, you will find volunteers giving tirelessly of themselves to build a better community and a better Nation. These hard-working, compassionate individuals and groups volunteer their time and energy to care for America's patriots, our Veterans.
VISN 4 would like to thank each and every volunteer across the VISN 4 network for their time, talents, and dedication to serving Veterans. We could not provide the highest quality of service and support for our Veterans without you.
If you have been thinking about volunteering at a VA near you, there's no time like the present to join the extraordinary group of people who volunteer in VISN 4.

Simple. Speedy. Safe.
E-Donate is a new online donation option that allows community members the opportunity to give back to Veterans. E-Donate is a simple, safe way to pledge your support to Veterans at any VISN 4 VA medical center.
The E-Donate option allows donors to select from a number of accounts at their local medical center. Additionally, all VA administrative costs are appropriated, so donors can be sure that 100 percent of their donations goes to the accounts they select and the Veteran patients they choose to support.
Donors can find the E-Donate button on the Volunteer or Donate page of each VISN 4's medical center's website. Donations can be made by credit or debit card. The actual donation is made through a secure site at the U.S. Department of Treasury's www.pay.gov.
A minimum of $5 is required for online donation.
Online donations can also be made on the VA's Voluntary Services website.
