Community Grants Program

Each year, The Baxter International Foundation receives hundreds of community grant requests. While it is not possible for every organization to receive funding, those that are in alignment with the Foundation’s goals and mission are given careful consideration. Projects brought to the Foundation through a local Baxter facility or by an employee are given strong preference. We welcome your ideas.


The Baxter International Foundation funds:

  • Programs that increase access to healthcare (e.g., an additional counselor to increase the number of patients served in a health clinic)
  • Programs in locations where Baxter employees live and work
  • Programs targeting a diverse population of underserved, underprivileged individuals


There are a number of programs and activities that the Foundation will not support. These include, but are not limited to:

  • General operating support
  • Capital and endowment campaigns (includes requests for infrastructure of any kind, equipment, vehicles, etc.)
  • Disease or condition-specific organizations or programs
  • Educational grants/continuing professional education scholarships
  • Hospitals
  • Individuals
  • Medical Missions
  • Research
  • Training
  • Travel
  • Event fundraisers or sponsorships
  • Lobbying of any kind
  • Fraternal, veterans, or religious organizations
