Donors like you are part of our Packard Children’s family, and we hope that you are staying healthy and safe. We want to share these dedicated resources for families with children, including a Q&A about how to talk with kids about COVID-19.

We also want to thank you for your continued support, which is more important than ever.

Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford is ramping up frontline efforts to care for the physical and mental health of our patients, families, providers, and staff; support vulnerable families in the community; and lead research to learn more about the virus. We are proud to be part of Stanford Medicine’s contributions toward our nation’s COVID-19 response, which includes a diagnostic test that is now being used to serve hospitals in the Bay Area and beyond. We also remain committed to our mission to care for every local child and family who needs us, regardless of their ability to pay.

Some of our donors have generously offered their help during this emergency. Here are ways you can help:

  • Donate: Your generous support will allow our hospital leaders to quickly deploy funds to where they are needed most. Thank you for helping provide the best patient care, research, and service to our community.


  • Learn more: We have opportunities for donors to invest in specific research and clinical initiatives to sustain and scale our response to COVID-19. Contact Rachel Olinger, Associate Vice President, Major Gifts, by email or call (650) 497-8166 to learn more about ways to accelerate this work.

Your dedicated support ensures that we are always ready to care for the kids and families who turn to us, especially during times of uncertainty. Thank you for helping us care for every patient who needs us.
