Packard Foundation (the David and Lucile Packard Foundation)

The David and Lucile Packard Foundation has worked with partners around the world to improve the lives of children, families, and communities—and to restore and protect our planet. One of the core program areas is Conservation and Science. The grantmaking is focused on ocean and land conservation, climate change mitigation, and scientific research.

The subprogram of Climate aims to:
1.Promote clean power alternatives that reduce reliance on coal.
2. Increase the availability of low carbon transportation options to minimize global oil consumption.
3. Increase energy efficiency across all sectors.
4. Minimize emissions from land use practices around the world by stopping deforestation and improving agricultural practices.
5. Reduce emissions of potent greenhouse gases beyond carbon dioxide alone, including black carbon, methane, and hydrofluorocarbons.
6. Identify breakthrough strategies that will change the trajectory of greenhouse gas emissions.

Unsolicited proposals are not accepted for the Climate grantmaking, but informal inquiries are welcome.
