Charitable Donations to U.S. HCPs and National Associations

We may provide charitable donations of financial support or equipment to US Health Care Providers (HCPs) and National Associations to support bona fide charitable activities, such as:

  • Charitable fundraisers
  • Public health education awareness
  • General community health research
  • Charitable sponsorships
  • “Tickets and Tables” request
  • Bonafide Charitable Efforts

Please email the specific division Grant Coordinators if you have any questions about your submission and/or would like to know how to submit your request

We receive many worthwhile requests. Unfortunately, due to budget limitations, we are unable to fund them all. It is important to note that past funding does not guarantee future approval and that submissions can be approved at an amount less than the requested amount. Do not assume that a request has been approved. Requestors will receive an email notification of approval or denial after the Boston Scientific committee has made its decisions.

The U.S. Physician Payment Sunshine Act requires all pharmaceutical, biologic and medical device manufacturers – like Boston Scientific – to report annually to the U.S. government payments and transfers of value made to U.S. physicians and teaching hospitals. This could include educational and research grants and charitable donations.
