We are actively engaged in creating long-term, meaningful change in our communities, and to offering our colleagues a place to pursue rewarding careers by giving back. We volunteer our time and resources, helping implement sustainable solutions to challenges facing our communities, acting as mentors and role models, and assisting those most in need.

Volunteering in the UK
Baxter employees support many charities throughout the UK from providing donations to local food banks which provide food packages for those in need, to helping maintain the beautiful gardens for the charity Horatio’s Garden.
Employees are actively encouraged to give back in their local communities and provide help and assistance to benefit others. We are currently fundraising to pay for the advanced training of an assistance dog named Baxter, through the charity Canine Partners. Feedback from our employees always shows how rewarding this is for them all.
Baxter Employee Engagement Programmes
The Baxter International Foundation Scholarship programme provides renewable scholarships for university education for children of Baxter employees worldwide. Awards are in support of undergraduate study and are merit-based. A third-party agency evaluates all applications.
Baxter Employee Disaster Relief Programme
The Baxter Employee Disaster Relief Fund was created to help employees who are facing financial hardship from property damage following a natural disaster. The fund relies primarily on individual donations from Baxter colleagues. Baxter International Foundation provided seed funding and covers all administrative costs to allow 100% of employee donations to reach fellow colleagues.
