Mission: The vala youngquist guild was founded in 1993 to support seattle children's hospital (a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt hospital) by raising awareness and funds for the uncompensated care program, which helps guarantee that children at seattle children's hospital receive the best care regardless of ability to pay.
Programs: The vala youngquist guild is a member of the seattle children's hospital guild association, a tax-exempt fundraising entity of seattle children's hospital. The hospital provides pediatric patient care, medical research, teaching of pediatric residents and other healthcare providers, as well as advocacy for children in the pacific northwest. In 2012, the vala younquist guild held a soak up the sun dinner auction and a shopping bus trip which raised funds primarily benefiting the uncompensated care program of the hospital. These funds fulfill the guild's mission by providing financial assistance to patients based upon family need and hospital resources.
