Legacy Giving

You Can Give Families Hope for the Future

A gift made through your will is one of the easiest ways for many donors to leave a legacy for future generations. Over the past decades, hundreds of people – of all income levels – have left meaningful legacies for children, teens and young adults from across the region at Seattle Children’s. Thanks to their generous bequests, the hospital continues to provide lifesaving care to thousands of critically ill children each year.

Including Seattle Children’s in your will is simple. Your attorney can include the necessary language in your will, in a codicil to your will or in a revocable living trust. See suggested bequest language for these clauses in your will.

Whether it helps you afford a larger gift to Seattle Children’s, avoid paying as much income or capital gains taxes or create income for your retirement, our team is available to answer any questions you may have, so please do not hesitate to reach out. We can show you the impact of a gift on your financial situation or help schedule a tour of the hospital. 

It is important to consult your personal legal and financial advisors when planning a gift. Need help finding an advisor? Visit our Legacy Advisor Directory.
