leaders in the development of Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital
Stanford, which opened in 1991. In 1996 the Hospital merged with
Stanford University Medical Center, and the Foundation was
established as an independent public charity to ensure a source of
dedicated funding and support for the health of children. Governed
by a Board of Directors, all philanthropic dollars raised by the
Foundation are directed to Packard Children’s Hospital and the
Stanford University School of Medicine.

Philanthropy aims to support clinical care, research, and education
to improve the health of children and expectant mothers locally and
worldwide. This means providing the best pediatric and obstetric
care available and allows scientists to pursue exciting new cures
for childhood illness.
