Philanthropy and foundations

Our philanthropic efforts are global and broad in scope, and we support communities through development projects, emergency relief, contributions to schools and universities, research prizes, and the underwriting of local cultural events and sports teams.

Novartis Foundation for Sustainable Development (NFSD)

The Novartis Foundation for Sustainable Development (NFSD) forms a central part of the Novartis corporate responsibility portfolio. Through NFSD, we collaborate with stakeholders to improve health and living conditions in the developing world. The Novartis Foundation plans and supports projects designed to strengthen and secure essential healthcare provision for the poor in developing countries. Through events and publications, it seeks to promote dialogue on development policy between public and private-sector institutions. By means of scientific analyses, it helps to define the nature and limits of corporate social responsibility, particularly for pharmaceutical companies.
