Donate

We are a 501(c)(3) charity registered with the Washington Secretary of State. Your gift is deductible, as allowed by law.

Cash Donations

The Baby Bank depends on the generosity of individual donors. Cash donations make it possible for us to purchase in bulk high-demand items such as receiving blankets, baby bottles, baby wash, diapers and diaper rash ointment, digital fever thermometers, and portacribs—vital items that keep babies and toddlers healthy, warm, and safe.

To donate:

  • Send a check, made payable to Baby Bank of Seattle, to P.O. Box 50745, Bellevue, WA 98015
  • Make a secure online donation through PayPal with your account or credit card (below).
  • Sign up for payroll deduction. Making regular donations through payroll is easy for donors, and it provides us with a predictable income. Your company may have such a program. If you are a state employee, you may sign up at any time of year through the Combined Fund Drive.
  • Participate in a corporate matching gift program. Double your donation! Many companies will match employees’ donations to a charity, including Microsoft, RealNetworks, and Starbucks. To find out how to apply for a matching gift, contact your company’s Human Resources or Personnel department.

In-Kind Donations

We cannot currently accept large baby equipment because of storage constraints, but there are many other items that we regularly need. We would be grateful for any of the items on our List of Needed Items.

We are located in the Urban Storage building at 918 South Horton Street, adjacent to the old Rainier brewery (and I-5). We ask that you call (206) 938-2364 or e-mail babies@blarg.net to arrange a delivery.
