For more than 45 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 our planet. We are a family foundation guided by the enduring business philosophy and personal values of Lucile and David, whose innovative approach to management helped transform a small electronics shop in their garage into one of the world’s leading technology companies. Their approach to business and community participation guides our philanthropy: We invest in leaders and institutions, collaborate with them to identify the most effective solutions, and give them freedom and support to best reach their goals. The values of the Foundation reflect the personal values of Lucile—who spent her life as a volunteer in the community, often on efforts aimed at improving the lives of children—and David—who believed in the power of science to improve the human condition and restore the health of the planet. Today, their children and grandchildren continue to help guide the foundation. We work on the issues our founders cared about most: improving the lives of children, enabling the creative pursuit of science, advancing reproductive health, and conserving and restoring the earth’s natural systems. We respect and support the leadership of our grantees and believe our success depends on seeking out and listening to those who are best able to make meaningful impact. Our resources are small compared to the challenges we seek to solve, so we invest carefully, constantly evaluate our progress, and refine our strategies to ensure that our efforts lead to effective solutions. Building on the legacy of our founders, we believe that talented and committed people, with appropriate resources and support, can drive meaningful innovation and create lasting change.

The mission of the Center for Effective Philanthropy is to provide data and create insight so philanthropic funders can better define, assess, and improve their effectiveness – and, as a result, their intended impact.We seek a world in which pressing social needs are more effectively addressed. We believe improved performance of philanthropic funders can have a profoundly positive impact on nonprofit organizations and the people and communities they serve.CEP seeks to contribute to the achievement of this vision through the data – primarily comparative data – we develop and draw on in our research, assessment tools, and programming and communications. This data helps funders understand how they can improve their performance and provides insight on key elements of foundation effectiveness. We recognize that many other institutions and organizations dedicated to improved funder effectiveness must also play a role for the vision we seek to become a reality – and we seek partnerships with these organizations when they will help us to better achieve our shared goals.Although our work is about measuring results, providing useful data, and improving performance, our ultimate goal is improving lives. We believe this can only be achieved through a powerful combination of dispassionate analysis and passionate commitment to creating a better society.
