How Your Support Helps

All contributions, of any size, make a difference. When you support our hospital, you help build healthier happy lives.

Each year, more than 163,000 children and expectant mothers depend on Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford and our specialty clinics for expert medical care. As a nonprofit hospital, we rely on community support to provide the best care available to patients and their families.

Care for All

More than one-third of our patients have public insurance, which does not cover many aspects of their care. Your support means we never have to turn a patient away due to their family’s financial circumstances. 

Nationally Ranked

Donor support has made our hospital one of the world’s best. Our hospital is nationally ranked and internationally recognized for safety, quality, and positive outcomes. 

Community Partners

Your donation supports children and families far beyond our hospital walls. For example, since 1994 our Teen Health Van has supported more than 14,000 at-risk and uninsured youth who otherwise would not have access to medical care.

YOUR Children's Fund Gifts at Work 

In 2015, Lucile Packard Children’s Fund donors contributed more than $8.2 million in support of our hospital’s highest priorities in pediatric research, family and community programs, and uncompensated care.
