Supporting our communities

We care deeply about the communities where we live and work. That’s why we support programs and organizations that address unmet medical needs, help students grow through STEM education, and deliver basic human services to our neighbors.

Community giving is one of three major ways Bristol Myers Squibb supports worthwhile causes and conscientious citizenship. We also work to reduce health disparities worldwide through the Bristol Myers Squibb Foundation, and our corporate giving efforts support the advancement of health care and scientific understanding.
