Thank you for coming TOGETHER for NWCF!

NWCF’s 2021 Virtual Gala & Auction kicked off online on May 1, and culminated with a live streamed event on the evening of May 8, 2021. We enjoyed a brief-but-fabulous live auction with auctioneer John Curley and raised more than $625k, including a record-breaking Fund-a-Need of $425k+! 


Don’t miss the NWCF Forum!

Don’t miss this year’s NWCF Forum, Racialized Trauma and Child Well-Being: Powerful Insights and Practical Tools for Healing. The virtual event featured trauma therapist and best-selling author Resmaa Menakem, pediatrician and child advocate Dr. Ben Danielson and three other exceptional leaders sharing their perspectives on addressing systemic racism with healing-centered solutions. Through August 31, available for on-demand viewing here.


Still time to double your impact!

All gifts received by midnight December 31 will be matched 1:1 by All In WA. Please give now to help provide crucial support to children and families most traumatized by the pandemic.


All In WA, a coordinated statewide COVID-19 relief effort, identified NWCF as its Supporting Children in Crisis Cause Fund. All contributions made to NWCF between July 9 and December 31 will be matched by All In WA

THANK YOU to all of you who gave so generously – your doubled gifts will change lives!

NWCF Forum Panelists Announced and CEUs Approved!

We are excited to welcome back Dr. Shawn Ginwright, Professor of Education and Africana Studies at San Francisco State University, as our keynote speaker at the NWCF Forum, and Seattle pediatrician Dr. Ben Danielson as our panel moderator. The 2020 Forum, Community Trauma and Child Well-Being: A Deeper Dive into the Future of Healing will be held on February 11 at the Convention Center. Together with a panel of community leaders, they’ll guide us through thought-provoking discussions, challenge our thinking and share their expert perspectives.

All That We Have Accomplished Together

We are delighted to share with you the complete version of the 2019 NWCF Impact Report. It reflects the many different ways we are working to end the cycle of child abuse and neglect in our community – and the hundreds of individuals and organizations whose contributions make this work possible. As we reflect on the past year, we are very grateful for our NW Children’s Foundation family. Working together, we will build a brighter future for our community’s children!
