Why Support VIM
For the working uninsured who need and deserve healthcare, but can’t afford it, VIM provides access to comprehensive, high-quality medical and dental care at no cost to those who qualify. Unlike government funded clinics, VIM is funded 100% by philanthropy, and staffed largely by credentialed volunteers. Our work is made possible thanks to generous, compassionate donors. Every precious gift is carefully stewarded and appreciated.
Philanthropy, partnerships, and volunteerism are the foundations of our healthcare center. Your gift to VIM will transform the lives of patients in need. Without VIM, these patients will suffer, fall through the cracks, and face serious health issues due to lack of care. Your donation supports the most vulnerable among us and builds a healthier community for all of us.
“When medical care is freely accessible to all, our local businesses are more productive.”
VIM in Schuylkill & Carbon Counties relies on the generous support of loyal donors, foundations, local businesses, and former patients. When you support VIM, you invest in a more equitable health care system. You make a lasting impact on the sustainability of the region. You save people’s lives.
