Lucile Salter Packard Society

Lucile Salter Packard

Who Was Lucile Salter Packard?

Lucile Salter began her lifelong advocacy for the health and well-being of children while volunteering as a Stanford undergraduate at the Stanford Convalescent Home. In 1986, she and her husband David Packard, donated $40 million for the construction of a new comprehensive hospital that would treat children, not just their diseases, and would embrace the importance of family centered care. Lucile was passionate about the design details of the new hospital, from the number of windows and skylights to the height of the rails and counters. The hospital opened in 1991 and was named Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital, in memory of Lucile who passed away in 1987.

An Invitation to Join

The Lucile Salter Packard Society (LSPS) recognizes and honors those who share Mrs. Packard's vision and philanthropic spirit through their estate and life income gifts that will provide future support to Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford or the child health programs at Stanford University School of Medicine.

When you designate Lucile Packard Foundation for Children's Health as a beneficiary in your will, trust, or life income gift, 100 percent of your gift supports children's health programs at the hospital or Stanford University School of Medicine (per your chosen designation). Your gift ensures the future of children's health for generations to come, and by joining others who have taken this step, you are a part of this important legacy.

The Lucile Packard Foundation for Children's Health works to improve the health and well-being of children and expectant mothers by fundraising on behalf of Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford and child health programs at Stanford University School of Medicine.
