Auxiliaries Endowment

The Auxiliaries Endowment was formed in 1999 to expand the Auxiliaries’ legacy and build on their long-standing commitment to help children who require the services of Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford. In 15 years, the Auxiliaries Endowment has grown to more than $14 million and has contributed more than $7.6 million in payout for important new medical services and programs, and to purchase equipment and fund research.

In 2014, the Association of Auxiliaries completes its $5 million pledge to fund the family waiting room in the surgical center that will be part of our hospital’s expansion. 

Contributions to the Auxiliaries Endowment are made primarily through estate plans of Auxiliary members and their families; and through outright contributions.

Gifts made through bequests must be designated according to the following language:

I hereby give to LUCILE PACKARD FOUNDATION FOR CHILDREN’S HEALTH, a California not-for-profit corporation (Tax ID #77-0440090), the following property: (Here, insert description of the property or portion of the estate that will be bequeathed).

This gift shall become part of the Auxiliaries Endowment at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, the income of which shall be used to support the objects and purposes designated annually by Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital and the Board of Directors of the Association of Auxiliaries.*

*This suggested language is designed as a general guide for the use of attorneys and financial advisors. Please contact the Foundation’s Office of Gift Planning for more information.
