The David and Lucile Packard Foundation has been operating for more than 45 years now, working with partners worldwide to improve lives of families, children, and communities, as well as restoring and protecting the planet.
They follow the core values of integrity, respect, leadership, commitment, and critical thinking.
The values of the foundation reflect the personal vale of Lucile and David Packard. Today, their children and grandchildren are now guiding the foundation.
Senay Ataselim-Yilmaz, Chief Operating Officer, Turkish Philanthropy Funds, writes that philanthropy often solves the very problems that stems from market failure. Some social issues, however, cannot be tackled by questioning the return on investment.
