Take your place within the circle of healing and hope for children in the Pacific Northwest. Join Children's Circle of Care.
What is Children’s Circle of Care?
Children’s Circle of Care is an international organization founded in 1995 to honor individual donors who support pediatric health and advocacy. Children’s Circle of Care includes members from 25 children’s hospitals in North America, including Seattle Children’s. Members’ contributions benefit the hospital to which they are given. Children’s Circle of Care members help shape the future of pediatric care and give hope for generations to come.
Children’s Circle of Care membership is open to individuals and family foundations who give $10,000 or more to Children’s in a calendar year. Membership is also extended to those making an irrevocable planned gift with a remainder value of $10,000 or more. Though it is often easiest to contribute cash, you might achieve greater tax benefits through gifts of appreciated property (stocks, bonds, real estate) and deferred gift arrangements, such as charitable remainder trusts and gift annuities. If the charitable portion or present value of a deferred gift totals $10,000 or more, you qualify for Children’s Circle of Care membership.
How Children’s uses your gift is up to you. Unrestricted gifts allow us to provide care to children whose families could not otherwise afford it and to meet unforeseen urgent or emerging needs. However, you might prefer that we use your gift for a specific medical program or capital project of interest to you.

- Invitations to exclusive local events designed to introduce members to hospital and clinical leaders so they can see first-hand the impact of their contributions
- An annual recognition reception for members that allows benefactors to share their passion for Seattle Children’s and network with others to expand their ideas for encouraging philanthropy
- Special designation on a Children’s Circle of Care donor wall at Children’s and in the hospital’s annual honor roll. (Requests for anonymity are always respected and carefully observed.)
