Grantmaking

Building upon David and Lucile Packard's long tradition of investing in the region where they started their company and raised their family, we partner with local organizations and leaders to build vibrant communities where people thrive.

Program Highlight: Salinas Youth Initiative

Investing in Homegrown, Passionate LeadersEffective programs that empower and inspire youth require strong, sustainable organizations and strong supported leaders. In the California community of East Salinas, we launched the Salinas Youth Initiative to support an ecosystem of passionate leaders and organizations who are engaging and inspiring youth during and after school. This place-based approach provides the community's youth with safe, positive, and impactful programs—ranging from tutoring, conflict resolution, sports, and arts—for neighborhood youth.
