Grants Officer

The David and Lucile Packard Foundation is a family foundation 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. 

The Packard Foundation continues to support the issues its founders cared about most and awards over $400 million in grants domestically and internationally to: improving the lives of children; enabling the creative pursuit of science; advancing reproductive health and rights; conserving and restoring the earth’s natural systems; and supporting and strengthening local communities. 



This ‘vision to strategy’ review of all grantmaking strategies is creating new opportunities for growth, innovation, and elevation of grants management operations. This new Grants Officer role will be the resident expert in grantmaking operations and have the opportunity to build from the ground up, contributing to best-in-class grantmaking tools, strategies, and approaches for end-to-end grantmaking in the Office of the President. 

The Office of the President oversees all operational, administrative, and programmatic work of the Board of Trustees. It makes grants to organizations and projects that lie outside the established program areas of the Foundation and are directed by the CEO and the Board of Trustees. 

The unique vantage point of the President’s Office allows the Grant Officer to liaise and collaborate with administrative and program teams across the foundation. This expansive role allows them to share grants and compliance knowledge, advocate for new ideas for technology and systems innovation, and support consistency and improvements across the Foundation’s grantmaking. 



The midpoint of the salary range for this position is in the $160K range.
