ABBOTT FUND

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-Driven

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