Community Grants Program

Community_Grants

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.
