Incorporated in 1964 in CA - Founded by the late David and Lucile Packard, co-founders of Hewlett-Packard (HP). HP is a global corporation developing and manufacturing information technology such as data storage, networking hardware and a variety of other technological products. The Packards formalized their passion for philanthropy in 1964 when they established the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. They believed America to be the home of a unique type of organization—foundations—that constitute a great American tradition and complement government efforts to focus on society’s needs. Today, their children and grandchildren continue to help guide the Foundation’s work.
