Avantor’s collective philanthropic work aims to create goodness that makes positive, lasting impact on our society and planet – today and for future generations. Our mission of setting science in motion to create a better world drives our purpose and our Science for Goodness ethos for Community Engagement.

Being committed to this purpose means helping to strengthen the communities in which we work and live. We achieve this through philanthropic giving from Avantor and the Avantor Foundation, and through our associates taking action to support healthcare access, advance STEM education and protect the environment. It’s how we make a better world, together.
