Who we are: Women’s Guild began as a knitting circle, evolved into producers of glamorous movie premieres and antique shows, and then became today’s benefactors of lifesaving enterprises. We have grown our mission to include 1,500 women of many ages, interests, and careers.

Our purpose: We are inspired by the opportunity to bring patients new hope by raising funds for treatment, essential medical programs, leading edge facilities and equipment, and pioneering research. Our top priority today: the Women’s Guild Simulation Center for Advanced Clinical Skills.

Accomplishments: In 2012, we commemorated our 55th anniversary and completed a pace-setting $20 million pledge to fund the Women’s Guild Lung Institute. Led by world-renowned pulmonary specialists, the Lung Institute conducts research and provides comprehensive care for diseases of the lungs, esophagus, chest wall, and airways.

What’s next: We will continue to provide resources for a wide range of programs, including the Women’s Guild Simulation Center for Advanced Clinical Skills; the Women’s Guild Lung Institute; the work of C. Noel Bairey Merz, MD, FACC, FAHA, director of the Women’s Heart Center and Women’s Guild Chair in Women’s Health; and the Saul and Joyce Brandman Breast Center — A Project of Women’s Guild at the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute.
