He is the third largest donor to Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas where his significant gifts established The Lester and Sue Smith Breast Center and The Lester and Sue Smith Urology Clinic, named in their honor.

He has also been a major donor to M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and The University of Texas Health Science Center where The Lester Smith Cardiovascular Training Center is located.
