OUR PHILANTHROPIC VISION

We view philanthropy as a powerful source for driving social innovations that lead to more resilient, healthier communities. It provides an opportunity for us to pioneer new ideas, generate new solutions, develop the next generation of leaders, strengthen civic and social organizations and build partnerships to solve complex, global problems. We apply four principles that we believe are fundamental to thoughtful and effective philanthropy:

    • COMMUNITY-DRIVEN

      Community solutions must be a collaborative effort with the people we seek to support, and ultimately, be owned by the community
    • IMPACTFUL

      We focus on impact through measurement and evaluation, to continually learn and make critical decisions
    • SUSTAINABLE

      Our investments are sustainable, transforming systems and people in ways that endure beyond our support
    • EQUITABLE

      We serve vulnerable populations with focus on the most marginalized, including people from underrepresented diverse communities, and differently abled and LGBTQ persons
HISTORY

The Abbott Fund was established by Abbott in 1951 as a philanthropic foundation. We invest in innovative ideas that expand access to health care, strengthen communities where we live and operate, and promote science and health education. In partnership with others, we strive to make a lasting impact on people’s lives and encourage others to take positive action.
