Our Mission

Established in 1931, The Palo Alto Auxiliary raises money for children and pregnant mothers within our Lucile Packard Children's Hospital community in need of assistance. Volunteer members engage in wide-ranging activities, all to provide financial support for uncompensated medical care given to children at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford. Some of our annual events might be a Summer Garden Party, a Fall Member Recognition Tea, A Winter Children's Holiday Party, or a Spring Fashion Show.

If you have an interest in helping children in need, this is the place. We invite you to join us in these endeavors.

Your donation is important -- no matter the size.
