Since its inception in 2015, members of the Women’s Leadership Guild have raised and gifted $40,000 to support women’s and children’s health and wellness and Pullman Regional Hospital’s highest needs.
The guild continues to recruit members who want to make a meaningful difference through the power of networking, education and philanthropy.
