Incorporated in 1966 in CA - Founded by the late William R. and Flora Hewlett. Mr. Hewlett was an engineer who co-founded the Hewlett-Packard Company, a global corporation developing and manufacturing information technology such as data storage, networking hardware and a variety of other technological products. In June 1977, the foundation elected its first full-time president, Roger W. Heyns. At that time, while redefining its areas of interest, the foundation also made plans to assume a national scope, with a modest proportion of funds allocated for a regional grantmaking program. In its grantmaking decisions as well as its interests and activities, the foundation is wholly independent of the Hewlett-Packard Co. and the Hewlett-Packard Company Foundation
