The Children’s Health Guild (CHG), a 501(c)(3) not‐for‐profit organization, is dedicated to
improving the quality of and access to pediatric medical care in the East Bay.
Founded in 2011 and comprised of approximately 60 talented and passionate East Bay Area
women, CHG has raised over $1,140,000 since 2011 for its two beneficiaries, UCSF Benioff
Children’s Hospital Oakland (CHO) and the George Mark Children’s House (GMCH). Both
organizations provide the full cycle of medical care for children, including: emergency care,
on‐going treatment, transitional and respite care, and palliative care that help children and
their families live life to the fullest during a child’s final days.
