The McKesson Foundation has been committed to helping people in the communities where our employees live and work for over 25 years. The McKesson Foundation has developed its programs to encourage employee volunteerism and to provide access to quality health care and education to children and youth in their communities.
These Programs are the Regional Grants Program, the Scholarship Programs, and the Educational Matching Gifts Program.
The McKesson Foundation is a corporate initiative based in San Francisco.
The Regional Grants Program
Keeping with our philosophy of Empowering Healthcare at McKesson Canada we also believe that it is our responsibility to help the most vulnerable and at-risk members of the communities in which we operate. Each year, the McKesson Foundation's Regional Grants Program makes it possible for many Canadian non-profit charities to improve the status of children and youth in the areas of health and education.
McKesson Canada encourages the submission of grant applications for one-time specific projects or programs on an annual basis, usually in the fall. The Canadian Regional Grants Program typically awards close to a total of US$250,000 to Canadian charities each year, with grants that range in size from $2,500 to $25,000.
Our call for submissions finished on October 31, 2012. The chosen organizations to receive a grant will be announced in the spring of 2013.
The 2014 program will be launched in the fall of 2013. Come back and visit us again!
