The Lucile Packard Foundation for Children's Health, in partnership with Stanford Medicine and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, unlocks philanthropy to transform health for children and families in Northern California—and around the world.  The Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health is the sole fundraising entity for Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford and the child and maternal health programs at Stanford University School of Medicine. The Foundation is named for Lucile Salter Packard, who committed her life to the well-being of children. Lucile, along with her husband David (co-founder of Hewlett-Packard), were 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 child and maternal health. 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.

The Foundation embraces all individuals and celebrates the unique differences each individual brings to the team and community. Its approach to fostering diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging is rooted in its cultural touchstones and inherent in its work to encourage every employee to bring their best, most authentic self to work and to provide each of them the opportunity to achieve their full potential.

The Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health seeks a Director of Development, Mothers & Babies Campaign with a bachelor’s degree and at least seven years of experience successfully closing major gifts and progressively responsible fundraising responsibilities; proven success with academic medicine and/or hospital fundraising and comfort with negotiating complex gifts; a demonstrated ability to craft proposals in a complex environment with multiple stakeholders; deep experience and sophistication working on gifts that resulted in the creation of new programs and business plans including the required collaboration with institutional partners to deliver results on philanthropic investment; and a track record of successful discovery work and pipeline building approaches.
