A promise to our communities

Our passion for making the world a better place runs deep at Ethicon. We’re proud that our products and technologies touch thousands of lives every day, bringing better surgical care to more patients in more places. Yet, wherever we are around the world, the people of Ethicon are united in a promise to improve the health of our communities, too. In an effort to enhance the quality of life in all of those places we call home, we contribute to non-profit charitable organizations whose focus aligns with ours. To learn if your charity qualifies for a charitable donation from Ethicon, please see the guidelines below.

  • Improving access to care and making patients better advocates of their own healthcare.
  • Support for Somerset/Hunterdon Counties of New Jersey, the home of Ethicon’s global headquarters. The Fund will consider charitable requests serving the disabled, youth at risk, and civic endeavors. Please direct requests for healthcare and basic needs in Somerset/Hunterdon counties to the Johnson & Johnson Somerset County Healthcare and Basic Need Fund at the Community Foundation of New Jersey.

Healthcare Professionals
Many physicians and nurses donate their professional skills and may request products for use in conjunction with overseas medical missions under the direction of a qualified charitable non-profit organization.

Please contact your Ethicon representative for further details.

Non-Government Organizations (NGOs)
Ethicon and our parent company, Johnson & Johnson, partner with international NGOs to respond to disasters, medical relief efforts and basic healthcare needs in underserved communities overseas.

Because the majority of our support is directed to specific programs and organizations, only NGOs approved by the Johnson & Johnson Corporate Contributions Organization are included in these activities. We do not accept unsolicited proposals.
