We are seeking a Compliance Coordinator to contribute to an effective team that works across programs to support grantmaking.
We are a family foundation that is guided by the enduring business philosophy and personal values of Lucile and David Packard, who helped found one of the world’s leading technology companies. Their approach to business and community participation has guided the David and Lucile Packard Foundation (Foundation)
for more than 50 years. Today, their children and grandchildren continue to help guide the work of the Foundation. We make grants at the local, state, national, and international level.
We work on the issues our founders cared about most, which are improving the lives of children; enabling
the creative pursuit of science; advancing reproductive health; conserving and restoring the earth’s natural systems; and supporting and strengthening an array of local nonprofit organizations.
