About Pleasure Guild
Pleasure Guild, an organization of 80 women committed to raising funds for Columbus Children’s Hospital, traces its roots to the hospital’s beginnings. In 1890, a group of boys and girls decided to make and sell small crafts to raise money for the purchase of “pleasures” for the children in the hospital. In 1908, a group of women formalized the children’s fundraising efforts and became Pleasure Guild of Children’s Hospital.

Pleasure Guild has raised over $2.5 million for the children of Columbus Children’s Hospital, and in recent years, Children’s Hospice Program. Members commit to a three-year term and participate in a variety of fundraising and service projects.
