The Board of Governors

The Board of Governors

The Cedars-Sinai Board of Governors (BOG) is an energetic community of philanthropic leaders who are helping define the future of healthcare. Established by the Board of Directors in 1971, the BOG has become the primary fundraising and leadership development group at Cedars-Sinai. Our mission is to support Cedars-Sinai's foremost clinical programs, biomedical research and community outreach by providing financial resources, educational experiences and volunteer opportunities.

Board of Governors Innovation Center

Our current campaign is raising $50 million for the Board of Governors Innovation Center.

At the Board of Governors Innovation Center scientists will identify the molecular cause of a particular disease, including cancer and diabetes, as well as disorders of the heart, lung, brain and others. Using state-of-the-art technology, these scientists will discover, develop and deliver personalized, lifesaving therapies.

"Having spent 40 years in the healthcare industry, I can assure you that the Cedars-Sinai Board of Governors is a unique and vibrant support group for one of the most outstanding healthcare delivery systems in the nation. I encourage you to consider joining the Board of Governors to support priority projects in the hospital and become actively involved in our events and programs."

Richard Sinaiko,
Chair, Cedars-Sinai Board of Governors
