Program Officer, Democracy Rights and Governance, The David and Lucile Packard Foundation

The Organization


The David & Lucile Packard Foundation was founded in 1964 by David and Lucile Packard.  We work with people and communities to create enduring solutions for just societies and a healthy, resilient natural world. We have worked with organizations and leaders in the U.S. and worldwide to advance progress in the critical areas of science, ocean and land conservation, climate change, women’s reproductive health and rights, and the well-being of children, families, and communities.

At a time of multiple, intertwined crises globally and here in the U.S., the Packard Foundation began in 2021 a long-planned review of our grantmaking strategies. The first step of our process was to rearticulate our vision and mission, reexamine our organizational values, and create a strategic framework that builds on and honors the Packard Foundation’s past while advancing justice and equity in all that we do.

Our Vision: A just and equitable world where both people and nature flourish.

Our new vision embraces a future where both people and nature flourish in a more just and equitable world. We explicitly acknowledge that the fate of people and the natural environment are inextricably linked. Solutions to the complex challenges we face must account for this interconnectedness.

Our Mission: We work with people and communities to create enduring solutions for just societies and a healthy, resilient natural world.

Our new mission takes on the critical work of addressing root causes of the challenges we face and mobilizing people for collective action. In addition to building on approaches that have guided our philanthropy for decades — working in partnership, committing to issues over the long-term, and grounding our work in science, knowledge, and data – we focus on understanding the systems that either accelerate or impede progress. It is only through just and equitable systems that we can find and sustain solutions to some of the biggest challenges we face today.

Our Values: Equity, Integrity, Belief in Individual Leadership, Thinking Big, Respect, and Effectiveness.

In addition to clarifying our long-held values, we added equity. We will champion equity by treating people with dignity, honoring a range of ideas and perspectives from those closest to the issues, creating inclusive processes, and funding people who have been historically excluded to spur progress for all. For more information, including our definitions of key concepts, please visit our website.


Located within the new Just Societies goal area, and reporting to the DRG Director, the Program Officer (PO) will support the development and implementation of the DRG Initiative’s multi-year nonpartisan grantmaking strategy. The PO will execute on all aspects of annual grantmaking for the Initiative portfolio, under the guidance of the DRG Director, including program research, planning and development, project initiation, proposal evaluation, grant administration and monitoring, and post-grant evaluation. The Program Officer role blends subject matter expertise in DRG with exceptional interpersonal and collaboration skills as both a key point of contact for DRG grantees and internal partners for related Initiative teams.

Philadelphia, PA

Associate Director of Development, Summer Search

The Organization

At Summer Search, we believe in ‘No Ceilings’ and envision a world in which young people, regardless of circumstances, can chart their own destiny. In the United States, students from underserved communities – disproportionately BIPOC and first-generation – face systemic inequities in school, in the workforce, and in life. Nevertheless, these young people possess unique strengths, resilience, and limitless potential.

Since 1990, Summer Search has partnered with young people during their transition from adolescence into adulthood by connecting them to expansive opportunities, professional mentoring, and a community of support.  Summer Searchers recognize their potential and build a toolkit to navigate and challenge systemic barriers, break new ground for their families and communities, and achieve economic equity and a life of purpose.

Summer Search is seeking an Associate Director of Development to lead Summer Search Philadelphia to reaching their 1.5-million-dollar fundraising goal. Working closely with the Philadelphia Executive Director, Boston Deputy Director, and managing a Development Coordinator, the Associate Director of Development will partner with a committed Philadelphia board and national development leadership to build Summer Search’s capacity to serve even more Philadelphia youth.
