Of all the partners standing hand in hand with UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland, the Branches roots run deepest. Reaching down to the bedrock upon which the hospital was built,the Children’s Hospital Branches is a network of volunteer auxiliaries that has been an integral part of the Children’s family since the hospital’s beginnings in 1914. The hospital founded by women has been supported by women, right from the start.

Throughout 102 years of service, members of the Branches have served as Children’s advocates in the community, raising millions of dollars to provide both seed money for new programs and ongoing support that has touched virtually every department and division at the hospital. Generations of kids and families have benefited from the efforts of the Branches.

Every year the more than 450 members of the Branches provide almost $1,000,000 to support programs throughout the hospital, including Family House, the Parent-Infant program, Katie’s Clinic for Rett syndrome, and the Art for Life program. CHORI, The Artist-in-Residence program, International Adoption Clinic, the Center for Child Protection and FACES for the Future also benefited, along with the Autism Intervention Program, the Intensive Care Nursery and the Palliative Care program.

As the hospital has evolved in response to the needs of the community, the Branches organization has, too, developing creative and enjoyable ways to bring people together in support of the hospital. Today, Branches events such as the Spring Shopping Spree, the Gala des Enfants, and the Winter Ball are part of the fabric of life in the Bay Area, eagerly awaited each year and indelibly associated with UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland.
