Description: The Baxter International Foundation supports programs that advance scientific research, medical education and patient care. Healthcare and patient-related organizations can submit requests for the following types of grant support from Baxter:
• Contributions – Support in the form of money, services, in-kind donations or non-Baxter product to not-for-profit or charitable HCOs and patient organizations, as well as for-profit HCOs and patient organizations, to support their missions, visions, goals and programming. Contribution requests may be funded on the basis of a legitimate public health need. We will not fund requests to support purely social events (e.g., birthday party and patient social events), events that have already occurred, or fund requests to pay, offset or reimburse a particular patient’s care or treatment.
• Educational Grants – Support of accredited or unaccredited educational programs for healthcare professionals, unrelated to Baxter’s products, programs or therapies and which are intended to provide general healthcare professional education, skills improvement and knowledge sharing in order to advance medical science.
• Investigator Initiated Research Grants (IIR) – IIR involves legitimate and scientifically rigorous pre-clinical, clinical and post-marketing studies conducted by qualified third parties with support from Baxter. It is intended to provide valuable scientific and clinical information to improve medical care for patients. This can include bench studies, animal studies, clinical studies, pharmacoeconomic and healthcare-related outcomes studies. IIR refers to research designed, initiated, conducted, analyzed and reported by an investigator who is not an employee of Baxter.
