McKesson Foundation

Founded in 1943, the McKesson Foundation envisions a world where affordable, quality healthcare is available to all. The Foundation is dedicated to supporting their employees' community involvement efforts and improving the health of patients through:
  • Improved healthcare quality
  • Personal health management
  • Lower healthcare costs
To that end, each year the McKesson Foundation contributes more than $5 million to nonprofit organizations working to improve the health of our communities.

Their main funding area is chronic disease management in the U.S., with a near-term focus on diabetes over the next three years. They primarily support diabetes management programs focused on innovative technology, minorities, testing, adherence and volunteerism - typically on a national scale.

In order to maximize resources to further their impact, they do not accept unsolicited grant proposals. Their program staff employ a proactive approach in identifying organizations for funding that advance their strategic goals. If you are seeking funding for a diabetes management program, please feel free to submit information about your organization to:

Does your chapter have any McKesson employees? Is your chapter willing to support diabetes management program in some manner? If so, reply to this message and perhaps we can send a letter of inquiry to the McKesson Foundation.
