Charitable Giving & Grants

We collaborate with partners around the world to help ensure people have access to the healthcare they need; to make a positive impact in communities where we live and work; and to develop the next generation of innovators who will lead the way in advancing healthcare.   

Baxter International Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Baxter International Inc., and focuses its funding across three key areas:

Access to Healthcare

We are committed to increasing access to healthcare in communities where we have a presence through capacity-building grants that align with our mission; and by recognizing and celebrating health systems, providers and public health research that advance clinical practice and expand patient treatment.

Our Communities

Every day, we strive to make a meaningful difference in the lives of the people who depend on our products, and in the communities where we live and work.

We are focused on supporting community programs that impact the underserved in locations where Baxter has a presence.

Fostering Innovation

We are helping nurture the next generation of scientific innovators, who will lead the way in defining tomorrow’s healthcare technologies. We take a hands-on approach by funding science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education; supporting employees to serve as mentors in communities worldwide; and creating diverse learning opportunities in the sciences.
