The Pfizer Foundation

The Pfizer Foundation* works to address the challenges of a complex and evolving global health landscape.

A charitable organization founded by Pfizer Inc., the Foundation provides funding and resources to support programs that nurture science and innovation, reduce the threat of disease, strengthen healthcare capacity, ensure access to quality care, address immediate disaster and humanitarian health needs, and enhance the community involvement of Pfizer colleagues. The impact of these programs is significant and far-reaching, impacting millions of people around the globe annually.

Grants & Investments

As part of our global health strategy, the Pfizer Foundation provides grants and makes investments to improve health systems in low- and middle-income countries and improve access to healthcare for underserved communities.

Our grant strategy focuses on three key areas:

Body: 

Addressing Immediate Health Needs in Disaster and Humanitarian Settings
Pfizer and the Pfizer Foundation provide coordinated support for disaster and humanitarian relief and recovery efforts around the world. This includes cash grants and product donations to organizations leading relief efforts, as well as employee donation matching and volunteer efforts.

In 2018, Pfizer colleagues and the Pfizer Foundation donated more than $31,192,000 to nonprofit organizations in the U.S. through matching gifts and volunteer grants. Some of that support was for communities affected by Hurricanes Florence and Michael, the California wildfires, and the earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia.

To date, our vaccine access program has resulted in the delivery of hundreds of thousands of doses of vaccines to humanitarian settings.

Supporting the Philanthropic Work of Our Colleagues
The Pfizer Foundation funds Pfizer's Colleague Community Engagement programs, which enable colleagues to have a direct impact on the communities in which they live and work through giving and volunteer initiatives.

By supporting the efforts of a variety of partners, the Foundation is advancing progress toward our goal of ensuring that everyone, everywhere, has access to quality healthcare services that can help them lead longer, healthier lives.
