Red Door Society Logo

Gilda’s Club’s programs are free to members thanks to the generosity of our community. As Michael Radner, Gilda’s brother, once said, “Free is expensive.”

Because of our Red Door Society, whenever program staff has identified a need, we have been able to create new programming and groups, making sure that no one faces cancer alone.

How Do I Join?

Joining the Red Door Society is easy! It simply involves making a 3-year commitment to Gilda’s Club of at least $250/year. Gifts can be made monthly, quarterly, or annually—whatever works best for you! Simply notify Gilda’s Club that your gift is kicking off your three year membership.

Note: Permanent recognition opportunities in our clubhouse are available to Red Door Society members who give at the $1,000/yr level or higher.

“My whole life changed when I heard ‘You have cancer.”…

“I didn’t have anywhere else to go that could give me what I felt I’d lost to cancer.

When I got to Gilda’s, I learned how to laugh again. The group gave me permission to say whatever I needed to say. I don’t have to leave anything at the door at Gilda’s… I can be my entire self.”

– Misty, Gilda’s Club Member
