Seattle Children's Research Institute is supported in large part by fundraising activities from guilds made up of groups of friends and families. In fiscal year 2013, combined efforts of all guilds raised $3 million for research programs.

This fundraising has a tremendous impact on work at the research institute, helping attract and retain the best scientists and accelerate research breakthroughs. Please join us by getting involved.
