The Novartis US Foundation was established in 1997 as part of Novartis' commitment to social investment. Its mission is to support programs within communities and nonprofit organizations on a range of social, health and educational issues related to Novartis' interests in healthcare.
The overall focus of the Novartis US Foundation is in the area of health as it relates to education, patient access and patient care. The Novartis US Foundation invests in programs that provide long-standing community ties and fulfill its corporate mission, vision and values.
Most of the support provided by the Novartis US Foundation is through matching gifts to education- and healthcare-related 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations receiving donations from US Novartis Group Company associates. Since its inception, this matching gifts program has resulted in the Foundation donating millions of dollars to charitable organizations supported by US associates. This "giving back" to the communities in which Novartis associates live and work is the core of the Foundation’s mission.
The Novartis US Foundation has also matched associates‘ contributions to designated relief organizations to aid victims of the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004, Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and Haiti earthquake in 2010.
