Women’s Guild has been inspiring innovation at Cedars-Sinai for more than a half century. Its members share a powerful commitment to supporting world-class healthcare, research and innovation. Women’s Guild members listen and learn, roll up their sleeves and get to work.
Currently, Women’s Guild is dedicated to raising $10 million for the Women’s Guild Simulation Center for Advanced Clinical skills.
In addition, we support the following vital medical research and educational programs at Cedars-Sinai:
- Women’s Guild Lung Institute
- Saul and Joyce Brandman Breast Center - A Project of Women’s Guild at the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute
Raising large sums of money through its legendary galas has consistently funded significant projects including state-of-the-art equipment, biomedical research and education fellowships.
In 2007, the organization marked its 50th anniversary by pledging $20 million to create the Women’s Guild Lung Institute, where renowned pulmonary disease specialists join forces in advanced clinical care, surgery and research to combat a broad spectrum of chronic illnesses and lung diseases.
Prior, in 2000, Women’s Guild teamed with a generous member to endow the Saul and Joyce Brandman Breast Center – A Project of Women’s Guild at the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute.
A highlight of each year is the Women’s Guild membership luncheon recognizing “Women of the 21st Century,” who have included Helen Gurley Brown, Mavis Leno, Evelyn Lauder, Donna Karan and Victoria Reggie Kennedy and Marilu Henner. Over the years, members have also welcomed notable speakers such as Arianna Huffington and Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Today, the commitment to giving is stronger than ever, thanks to the dynamic members of Women’s Guild who continue to take the lead in making a difference in the lives of patients for generations to come.
