About the David and Lucile Packard Foundation The David and Lucile Packard Foundation (Foundation) is a family foundation located in Los Altos, California. The Foundation 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 our philanthropy for over 50 years. Today, their children and grandchildren continue to help guide the work of the Foundation. The Foundation makes grants at the local, state, national, and international level.

A staff of 130 conducts the day-to-day operations and a Board of Trustees oversees the work of the Foundation. David and Lucile Packard passed on the following core set of values: integrity; respect for all people; belief in individual leadership; commitment to effectiveness; and the capacity to think big.
About the Children, Families, and Communities Program The foundations for a lifetime of health and learning are built in the first five years of a child's life, and adults are key to making these foundations strong.
When adults know how to support a child's healthy development and can create experiences for learning, children grow up with the curiosity and confidence they need to succeed in school and life. Many different adults matter to a child's growthfrom parents to child care providers, educators, and health care professionals. They all play an important role in nurturing a child's development, learning, and health.
We can help children have a strong start in life by ensuring that all the adults in their lives are equipped with the best information, coaching, resources, and support they need to help the children in their care grow and thrive.
We aim to:
Improve training and professional development for child care providers and educators so they can support children's learning and growth.
Provide parents, family, and friends that care for children with the skills and support they need to create nurturing environments for children.
Ensure all children and their families have access to and can afford quality health care and health insurance coverage.
