Allied Arts Guild Auxiliary

The Allied Arts Guild Auxiliary (formerly Woodside-Atherton Auxiliary) is an auxiliary championing children’s health at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford. The Auxiliary through its assets and membership provides funds for uncompensated care and special projects which benefit seriously ill and disabled children. Through its mission, AAGA gives community and common purpose to its members.

The Guild has been owned by the Allied Arts Guild Auxiliary since 1951 and operates the site with a retail/office/events mix for the benefit of Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford. The Auxiliary operates the Artisan Shop on the property where members work to support the mission.

Each year the members of the Auxiliary do special fund raising events for a special project as well as operate the beautiful historic Allied Arts Guild in Menlo Park. The Auxiliary welcomes visitors to the property Monday through Saturday each week and hosts a variety of events including weddings, parties, memorial services and meetings.

Our dedicated members see the powerful benefits of volunteering to make children’s lives better.
