About the Organizational Effectiveness (OE) Program at the Packard Foundation

At the Packard Foundation, we believe that one of the most powerful ways we can affect pathways to transformational change in our world is by investing our resources in the strengths and capacities of our grantee partners.

Organizational Effectiveness grantmaking and support at the Foundation takes shape in these ways:

  • Work directly with grantee partners to create customized projects that provide easy access to training, coaching, assistance in navigating resources, and peer support that support organizational transformation — all designed to achieve deeper mission impact for their organization.
  • Bring leaders together in cohorts, providing opportunities to strengthen individual skills, learn together, and build the collaborative relationships that are key to achieving greater impact.
  • Work in partnership with program staff at the Foundation to explore opportunities to invest in strong leaders and organizations as part of their core grantmaking efforts, thereby amplifying the impact of their strategies.
