The Glennon Guild is an organization of around 350 women committed to helping SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital through raising funds, volunteering in the hospital and advancing the welfare of the hospital and its patients. Since its founding in 1957, over 1000 Guild members have worked to raise money for important improvements, for example the remodeling of our inpatient cancer unit (4 North), the creation of the helicopter landing pad and the expansion of a “Healing Garden.”
Through the Guild’s fundraising efforts, the hospital has also purchased state of the art medical equipment, such as advanced endoscopes, telemedicine software, heart and lung monitoring devices and lifesaving ECMO machines.
Originally Guild members were mostly doctor’s wives but these days they welcome enthusiastic members of the community who share their mission in providing for the deserving patients and families of SSM Health Cardinal Glennon. The Guild's fundraising activities have included the Glennon Card, Hospital Book and Lobby Sales, the Fashion Show and various designer show houses.
Membership on the Guild Board is by invitation and includes payment of dues, attendance of Board meetings and participation in Guild activities. If you are interested in joining, please contact Julie Holland at firstname.lastname@example.org.
