Make an Impact for Kids and Moms

How Your Gift Helps

Your gifts help build healthier, happier lives. Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford and the Stanford School of Medicine rely on donor support to advance groundbreaking research and provide the best possible care to our patients and their families. 

Many of our donors start with a gift to the Lucile Packard Children’s Fund, which provides crucial resources for innovative research, family and community services, and support for kids and moms in our community to get the care they need, regardless of their ability to pay.

You can also designate your gift to one of our fundraising focus areas or support one of our many other initiatives. Contributions of all sizes make a difference!
