1) Objective

For more than 50 years, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation has worked with partners around the world to improve the lives of children, families, and communities and to restore and protect the planet as a whole. Their international grant making includes (1) conservation and science (ocean and land conservation, climate change mitigation, and scientific research); (2) population and reproductive health (expand access to and improve the quality of essential services, including comprehensive sexuality education, voluntary family planning/contraception, and safe abortion); and (3) organizational effectiveness (build core strengths in areas like strategic and business planning, financial management, board and executive leadership).

2) Eligibility

They accept grant proposals only for charitable, educational, or scientific purposes, primarily from tax-exempt, charitable organizations. They do not provide funding for projects that benefit specific individuals or that serve religious purposes.

3) Location

Their health program focuses on South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, and the other programs are globally.

4) Budget

They have a yearly budget of $148,000,000 for international grants for an average of 400 grants (average grant size app. $350,000).

5) Application

Given that the Foundation has a limited grant budget that does not change much from year to year and that they believe in supporting grantees over a long time, they do not have the flexibility to fund many new grantees. Therefore, they do not accept unsolicited proposals. At the same time, they remain open to new ideas and approaches that meet the strategic grantmaking goals. Interested grantseekers may submit an online inquiry via their website.
