About the Fran Nordstrom Guild 2.0
Our Fundraising Mission
The need for uncompensated care has skyrocketed in the past few years, and is now more than $127 million annually. This free or partially paid funding assures all children will receive quality care regardless of their families’ financial resources. Additionally, Seattle Children’s now places a high priority on research to cure and ultimately prevent children’s health challenges.
The Frances W. Nordstrom Guild
Frances W. Nordstrom was an enthusiastic advocate and volunteer for Seattle Children's Hospital and a member of its Board of Trustees. Following her untimely death from cancer at the age of 47, the Frances W. Nordstrom Guild (FNG) was established in 1985 in her memory.
Through volunteer and fundraising activities and the generous support of friends and family, the Guild has contributed more than $3.6 million for the uncompensated care program which provides quality health care for all children regardless of their families’ ability to pay. This amount is estimated to be $127 million for the fiscal year of 2017. The guild has also been a supporter of Seattle Children’s Research Institute.
