Seattle Children’s Hospital and Research Foundation
Seattle Children’s was initially founded and run by a group of philanthropic women more than 100 years ago. Their generous spirit can be seen today in the support of thousands of donors and guild members, and it’s their support that ultimately makes it possible for our care and research teams to come together – raising funds to ultimately create better futures for our patients.
In addition to an expert and caring staff, our extraordinarily generous community is one of our greatest strengths. Ever since Anna Clise formed the first hospital guild in 1907, people have been a major force in improving the health and well-being of all kids. Each year, we receive about 100,000 gifts — from lemonade stand proceeds to estate bequests.
