"We want to give in the most effective way possible."

"Judy and I want to support Children's Hospital's mission in any way we can - that's number one," says Bob Cline. "Number two - we want to give in the most effective way possible."

The Clines have generously given outright gifts to Seattle Children's Hospital and have also designated Seattle Children's Hospital as a beneficiary of their IRA. "The IRA method of deferred giving is very tax efficient - in effect it really becomes a tax-free distribution," says Bob. "Otherwise the remains of the IRA get taxed twice, with an estate tax and an income tax. It just made a lot of sense to Judy and me."

Children's more than 100 years of never turning a child away for economic reasons, the need for more space and the emphasis on research all work together to provide better care and treatment for our patients. "Each of these areas goes hand in hand and all require philanthropic support from the community," says Bob. "You only have a few passions in your life - Seattle Children's Hospital mission is one of our passions."

Bob and Judy have four grown daughters and now four grandchildren who are meaningful reminders of the comfort of having Children's close by. "Anybody who has children, whether they've had to go to Children's Hospital or not, has to be so grateful that we have this resource," says Judy. "It's like a safety net. My goodness - we certainly feel that way."
