Guthrie auxiliaries have a long tradition of supporting the needs of their hospitals. Their primary purpose is to provide financial support to the hospitals by raising money for equipment or other special projects geared toward the communities the hospitals serve. The auxiliaries also award academic scholarships, help raise awareness of hospital services and perform community outreach on behalf of the hospitals. Activities include:
- Planning and implementing special fund-raising events
- Sponsoring bake sales, book sales and uniform sales
- Advocacy on behalf of the hospital
- Coordinating or helping to plan community health education programs
