To set up a memorial fund

If you would like to direct family and friends to make a donation in lieu of flowers, you may contact our development office to set up a memorial fund. Please call (206) 606-2070 or email donate@seattlecca.org and our development office staff will be happy to assist you. If you would like the fund to support a specific area at SCCA, please indicate this when you call.  

SCCA will send an acknowledgment letter to all donors who give to the fund. We will also notify the designated next-of-kin of these gifts. 

You may provide these instructions to family and friends who wish to donate to the fund: 

“Donations in lieu of flowers may be made online at https://secure.seattlecca.org or sent to Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, PO Box 24385, Seattle, WA 98124-0385. Checks may be made payable to SCCA with indication that they are in memory of [name].”
