Our Sponsors & Donors

We offer a very special thank you to those who have supported us during the past eleven years.

The funds donated to us during this time have been used in three specific ways:

The largest portion of money has been given for research of autoimmune diseases; originally to Puget Sound Blood Center and more recently to Benaroya Research Institute. Since spring 2000, Pat’s Fund has donated in excess of $300,000 to these two organizations.

A range of events including golf tournaments, wine events, breakfasts/luncheons, speaking presentations and annual educational events have been produced for the purpose of increasing awareness and raising funds.

Overhead costs including:

  • Minimal administrative fees for a 24 month period.
  • Office supply expense reimbursements.
  • The maintenance of a Board of Directors receiving no fees.


There have been a range of generous sponsors who have supported Pat’s Fund in a variety of ways. Special appreciation is offered to two key sponsors for their important support:

  • Banner Bank Corp – 11 consecutive years
  • Virginia Mason Medical Center – 6 consecutive years


Donations appear in all amounts for a variety of reasons. There is no amount given that is too small and every contribution makes a difference. To the many hundreds of individuals who have supported and donated to Pat Fund we extend our great appreciation.

Your help is needed!

When invaders attack your body the immune system goes to work. If things don’t go right healthy tissue can be targeted producing an autoimmune response. No one knows yet why this happens. There are no cures!
