Matching Gift Programs
Baxter employees are involved in their communities in many meaningful ways. In addition to giving their time through volunteering, many employees also choose to donate to causes that are important to them. The Foundation’s Matching Gift Program recognizes U.S. employee contributions to organizations by matching an employee’s donation of $25 or more, up to $5,000, to nonprofit, tax-exempt U.S. hospitals and healthcare agencies, schools, and cultural organizations.
In support of the company’s commitment to education, the Baxter International Foundation Scholarship Program provides scholarships for post–high school education for children of Baxter employees around the globe. Awards are in support of undergraduate study and are presented on a merit basis. A neutral, third-party agency evaluates applications on the basis of the students’ academic, extracurricular, and employment accomplishments.
Dollars for Doers Program
The Baxter International Foundation values every hour employees volunteer. Through the Dollars for Doers (DFD) Program, U.S. employees can convert time volunteering into grants for their favorite charities. Ten hours of volunteering can equal $100 for a favorite charity.
