Thank you for your interest in fundraising for Seattle Children’s! It takes involved people like you to engage communities to help us care for kids and their families.
The information below will help you in the brainstorming process as you decide what type of fundraiser you want to hold. Just remember...there is no experience needed to host a fundraiser. All you need is energy, enthusiasm and the desire to improve the health of kids!

What to Consider
Choose a fundraiser that is right for you – and then tell us about it!
From garage sales to wine tastings and lemonade stands to fun runs, fundraising events and projects of all shapes and sizes can make a big difference for kids. See our list of ideas to consider or come up with your own! Be sure to consider the size, interest, talents, goals and time availability of your group. How long it takes to plan and how much work it is depends on the fundraiser you choose and how much time you have to give. Once you have your idea, tell us about it!
Identify your target audience
Determine who is most likely to attend and support your event or project. Are you trying to attract the general public or a specific audience? Have a strategy in place to encourage people to attend.
Form a planning committee
Assemble a group to help plan and organize your event or project to ensure that you have a successful fundraiser. You are responsible for forming this group and for recruiting any volunteers you might need. Please keep in mind that Seattle Children’s requires that individuals under the age of 18 have a mentor or adult advisor to oversee the coordination of a school of community event or project.
Seattle Children’s is here to help! Depending on the nature and needs of your event or promotion, we may be able to offer representation and assistance. For more information, email us or call 206-987-2153.
You can host a fundraiser in honor or remembrance of a patient or loved one. Let us know in your fundraising application if your event or project is in honor or memory of someone, as we provide special recognition for these commemorative donations.
