The Children’s Health Guild is a volunteer organization consisting of fifty, primarily Lamorinda based, women who dedicate their time and talent to raise funds on behalf of UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland and George Mark Children’s House. Members commit to a four-year period of Active Membership to maximize their involvement and impact within the organization.

2017 - 2018 Honored Active ASSOCIATES

Upon completion of four years of Active Membership in CHG, members then become Associate Members. In 2014, CHG launched a membership designation for interested Associates called “Honored Active Associates” (HAAs).  This program is ideal for members who have recently become Associates and those who would like to continue to stay involved in CHG. HAAs receive announcements on events and activities related to fundraising efforts as well as to social activities to re-engage past friendships. HAAs also help outreach to and encourage involvement from the broader Associate base, and participate in 1 - 2 informal fundraisers throughout the year.
