Host a Fundraiser

Host a Fundraiser imageThe goal of Seattle Children’s is to be the best, and we couldn’t do it without our generous community of fundraisers. Your efforts help us provide outstanding patient care, support research into groundbreaking treatments and ensure no child who needs us is ever turned away.

A lot of work goes into planning and implementing events and projects. We must ensure that volunteers are raising money for Children’s according to federal and state regulations and in compliance with Children’s policies and procedures. Please see our Community Fundraising Application and Guidelines for Fundraising Events to help you in your planning.
