Grants Manager, 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 thousands of 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.

Reporting to the Grants Management Director, the Grants Manager will be responsible for the management of the Foundation’s grants, working closely with colleagues to provide effective and collaborative oversight of grants.

Specifically, this position will be responsible for the due diligence, accuracy, and completeness of all grants in an assigned Foundation goal/initiative. In partnership with program staff, the Grants Manager will conduct all compliance and due diligence reviews of a grant file and supporting documentation. The Grants Manager will collaborate with teams and colleagues across the Foundation to ensure best-in-class grantmaking, reduce staff and grantee burden and contribute to continuous improvement of grantmaking processes.
