Avantor Foundation

Avantor Foundation

The Avantor Foundation’s mission is to create a better world by advancing science education and providing healthcare to the needy.

The Avantor Foundation recently underwent a strategic review to identify ways to better serve our communities by setting science in motion. During this process, we refined our focus areas on advancing science education and healthcare to the needy. 

Science Education

The Avantor Foundation believes that the best way to ensure the future of science is by investing in science education. Yet the number of students pursuing science and technology degrees, especially among women and minorities, is low. To help address this, the Avantor Foundation funds:

  • Community-based organizations that teach science and technology to students in underserved high schools
  • Science labs in underserved schools, community colleges or smaller universities by providing support for products, equipment and/or talent

Healthcare to the Needy

Across the globe, there are people who do not have access to medical facilities, such as hospitals or clinics, or other traditional healthcare providers. Yet they are in desperate need of quality medical care. The Avantor Foundation funds organizations that bring basic healthcare services and workers to people who are impoverished, do not have easy access to healthcare services or are disaster survivors.
