Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health Seeks Grant Applications

PALO ALTO – The Lucile Packard Foundation for Children's Health invites nonprofit child health organizations serving San Mateo and Santa Clara counties to submit requests for funding by June 1.

The Foundation's mission is to promote, protect and sustain the physical, mental, emotional and behavioral health of children in its two-county service area. Its two areas of grantmaking interest are: 1) to protect children from injury (ages 0 to 5), with an emphasis on preventing neglect, child abuse and other forms of intentional injury; and 2) to promote emotional, mental and behavioral health in pre-teens (ages 9 to 13).

"We are interested in partnerships with community-based, family-centered, nonprofits whose primary focus is prevention," says Stephen Peeps, foundation chairman and CEO.

Initial requests for funding in the form of a letter of inquiry (LOI) are due June 1. Applicants who are invited to submit full proposals then will receive further information. The foundation's board of directors will make final funding decisions in December.
