Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation

The mission of the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation is to reduce health disparities around the world. They seek to realize the power of health solutions by strengthening and integrating community-based healthcare worker capacity and supportive services.

The Foundation actively engages partners to develop, execute, evaluate and promote strategic and innovative programs to improve the health outcomes of populations disproportionately affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa, hepatitis in Asia, serious mental illness in the United States and cancer in Europe. By sharing lessons learned and showcasing the innovative work of their partners on this web site and elsewhere, they also hope to be a useful resource to patients, healthcare professionals, public health experts, community organizations, healthcare advocates and policymakers who are committed to building bridges to health for all.

Nonprofit organizations in communities where Bristol-Myers Squibb maintains a facility should submit their requests for company contributions. Apply for grants if your program takes place in Connecticut, Indiana, New Jersey or New York.

This foundation is not a good fit for BDPA. However, it might be worthwhile if your chapter has members who work for Bristol-Myers Squibb.
