Every Gift Matters

Support the Children’s Fund

Every year, thousands of kids and expectant moms turn to Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford for extraordinary care and life-saving treatment. Your gift will support

  • undercompensated care, ensuring that all children and expectant mothers in our community receive the care they need, regardless of their family’s ability to pay;
  • research, enabling our physicians and scientists to transform novel ideas into revolutionary treatments; and
  • gifts to family and community services, helping provide kids and loved ones with resources like food, lodging, and transportation.

Creating Better Lives for Moms and Children

When you support the Children’s Fund, one-third of every dollar goes to the Maternal and Child Health Research Institute (MCHRI), which provides funding and resources for incentivizing researchers across Stanford to apply their expertise toward solving challenges facing children and expectant mothers. Grants from MCHRI allow researchers to be nimble and move quickly, speeding promising discoveries to patients.
