Giving and Engaging

Working closely with public and private partners around the world to ensure people have access to the healthcare they need, to develop the next generation of innovators who will lead the way in advancing care, and to create long-lasting impact in our communities.

The Baxter International Foundation

Baxter International Foundation supports initiatives and organizations that make a positive, lasting impact on increasing access to healthcare for the disadvantaged and underserved.

In all of its outreach efforts, 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.

Throughout the world, limited government funding for healthcare, growing numbers of uninsured or underinsured individuals, and natural and man-made disasters further increase the need for healthcare services. At the same time, many nonprofit health organizations face budget and staff limitations, struggling to meet the needs presented to them daily. The Foundation, established in 1981, is honored to be part of the solution.
