McKesson Foundation

Founded in 1943, the McKesson Foundation is committed to helping people in the communities where our employees live and work.  It is dedicated to supporting our employees' community involvement efforts and improving the health of patients through improved healthcare quality, personal health management, and lower healthcare costs.


The McKesson Foundation is a corporate initiative based in San Francisco.


The Regional Grants Program

In keeping with our philosophy of Lifting Barriers, we 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 Regional Grants Program, supported by the McKesson Foundation, makes it possible for many Canadian non-profit charities to improve the status of children and youth in the areas of health, education and the fight against poverty.


The Regional Grants Program typically awards close to US$300,000 to Canadian charities each year, with grants that range in size from $2,500 to $25,000.



McKesson Canada encourages the submission of grant applications for one-time specific projects or programs on an annual basis.
