Baxter International Foundation

The Baxter International Foundation

Baxter International Foundation, established by the Baxter International Inc. in 1981, began to focus exclusively on increasing access to healthcare in 2002 - particularly for the disadvantaged and underserved - in and near communities where Baxter employees live and work, world wide. It provides grants to NGOs to undertake programs that help communities to have quality healthcare in an affordable manner. Grants are made in different countries of the world where Baxter International Inc. has an office. The Foundation covers areas of dental, mental health, substance abuse and health services to those suffering from disability, domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse. It also offers prizes to recognised community services through its Foster G. McGraw Prize. In most cases, the Foundation extends grants to those NGOs recommended by the local facility of the Baxter International Inc. Proposals are accepted round the year, but there are submission deadlines for each quarter and NGOs can submit proposals accordingly. . /
