How We Operate


David and Lucile Packard lived by a set of values and a code of conduct that guide the Foundation’s governance and operations today.

Our Board of Trustees is responsible for setting the mission and strategic direction of the Foundation and for overseeing its finances, operations, and policies as set forth in the Articles of Incorporation, the Bylaws, and committee charters. The Board of Trustees regularly reviews the operations and policies of the Foundation to ensure that they comply with all legal requirements and reflect the best practices in the field.
