At Medtronic, we recognize we cannot fulfill our Mission alone. In order to “alleviate pain, restore health, and extend life,” we must work closely with the many stakeholders in healthcare, including providers, medical societies and patient groups. Part of our role is to support independent medical conferences, charitable events, medical education, and public education programs.
Since May 2008, we have shared publicly all donations given by Medtronic to U.S. customers or organizations affiliated with customers (including patient groups and medical societies). As of April 26, 2014, we began posting these updates to our Donations Registry on an annual basis. The annual update of the data is made available on this website by the end of March each year.
Please Note: These donations are separate from those funded by Medtronic Foundation, which makes contributions to nonprofit organizations worldwide focused on health access. For more information on Medtronic Foundation and its grants, go to Medtronic Foundation.
