Ashbury College Guild

The Ashbury College Guild is a parent volunteer organization that is both a fundraising and a friend-raising body, founded in 1950.  We work in alignment with Ashbury College’s vision and mission to engage the Ashbury parent community by encouraging volunteer participation in Guild sponsored activities and events.  From Homecoming, the Ashbury Ball to Springfest, the energy and excitement is buzzing all year round and these events are critical in bringing together the Ashbury community while supporting Ashbury students by raising funds for a variety of curriculum enhancing programs, scholarships and endowment. 

All parents and legal guardians of current Ashbury students are eligible to stand for election to the Guild.  Members may hold office for a period of three years and past members may reapply after a one-year absence.  The Guild is comprised of 15-23 voting members and up to 5 non-voting members.
