What We Expect

Guilds are encouraged to plan at least one fundraising project each year. It can be as simple as a garage sale or as ambitious as a formal auction. Beyond this recommendation, guild activity and individual member involvement is flexible.

How We Help

Guild Association staff, trustees and committee members make it easy to start and maintain a guild with the following support:

  • Event consulting and fundraising ideas
  • Inspirational patient stories and hospital information to share at events
  • Training and tips to help you increase your revenue
  • Help from a guild accountant with necessary IRS filings
  • Certification as a 501(c)3 nonprofit, including a federal taxpayer ID number
  • Event liability insurance when applicable
  • Basic event supplies, including banners, posters and credit-card processing machines
