1 % Pledge, 2022
For 2022 our pledge has been made to The Children’s Health Guild. CHG is a non-profit organization of volunteers dedicated to raising funds for UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland (UBCHO) and George Mark Children's House (GMCH) in San Leandro.
Originally founded as St. Luke’s Junior Auxiliary based in San Francisco, the organization has raised funds for over 40 years to support low-income women and children’s medical care.
CHG's efforts help these beneficiaries provide the full circle of medical care including emergency care, on-going treatment, transitional and respite care, and palliative care that helps children and their families live life to its fullest during a child’s final days.
1% Pledge, 2021
