The Baxter International Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Baxter International Inc. The Foundation’s fundamental purpose is to make a positive and lasting impact on healthcare and the health of communities in and near where Baxter employees live and work.
Increasing Access to Quality Healthcare
Throughout the world, limited government funding for healthcare, growing numbers of uninsured or underinsured individuals, and natural and man made disasters converge to increase the need for healthcare services. At the same time, many non-profit health organisations face budget and staff limitations, and struggle to meet daily needs.
The mission of the Baxter International Foundation is to increase access to healthcare for the disadvantaged and underserved around the world. Commitment to that mission is demonstrated in the employee grant and employee programmes which are part of the Foundation’s offerings.
Total Impact since 1981
Baxter has contributed over $108 million to approximately six and half thousand charities worldwide.
