Founded in 1943, the McKesson Foundation 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.

Our current focus area is cancer, with a specific emphasis on organizations that provide non-medical services to cancer patients in the U.S. and Canada.

Founded in 2012, the Foundation's Giving Comfort program provides cancer patients with care packages to provide comfort and relief during treatment. Giving Comfort works with national distribution partners that include the American Cancer Society, major hospitals and grassroots NGOs.

Each year the McKesson Foundation contributes more than $5.5 million to nonprofit organizations working to improve the health of our communities. Over the past three years, the McKesson Foundation provided more than $6.2 million to support employee contributions to charitable organizations.

Note to prospective grantees: Please note that to maximize resources and further our impact, we do not accept unsolicited grant proposals.
