The Association of Auxiliaries for Children established the
Auxiliaries Endowment in 1999 to expand their legacy and build on their long-standing
commitment to support Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford. The stated
purpose of the endowment is to assist the hospital in launching pioneering initiatives,
providing bridge funding for projects at pivotal junctures, and expanding existing
pediatric services and programs.

Since its creation, the Auxiliaries
Endowment has grown to $22 million and provides more than $1 million in grants annually for
a wide variety of programs and research projects at Packard Children’s. The
Association of Auxiliaries gave a $5 million gift to fund the family waiting room in the
Treatment Center of the new additions to the hospital. 

During
the coronavirus pandemic, the Auxiliaries Endowment provided urgent funding of $115,000 for
a Lightstrike Germ-Zapping robot—critical to the hospital’s efforts to
protect the health and safety of patients and families.
