About Us

Founded in 1970, The Beach & Country Guild is an all-volunteer organization of women dedicated to generating funds in support of United Cerebral Palsy in San Diego (UCPSD) and the programs, facilities, and services it provides its clients. 

Every element of our operation is performed by our members; there are no paid positions within the group. Everything from fundraising to finances, media relations to the planning and execution of our major fundraiser, Dia del Sol, is generated, planned, or procured by our membership.

Membership within the Guild is invitation-only. New member candidates are thoughtfully selected by existing members because of their unique skills and attributes that would benefit the group, and they will share our passion for our goal of supporting UCP San Diego.

Due to a unique clause in the Guild’s bylaws, all funds raised by our organization remain in San Diego county, ensuring that our efforts benefit our neighbors within our community.

With net annual contributions to UCP San Diego averaging between $150,000 and $250,000, the Beach & Country Guild is a significant factor within the annual operations of UCP in San Diego County.
