Associate Volunteer Program
The Beckman Coulter Foundation recognizes the outstanding volunteer efforts of Beckman Coulter associates by supporting numerous volunteer events and efforts throughout the globe.
Each year, hundreds of associates dedicate countless hours and energy toward raising money and awareness for non-profit organizations and charities. These events and efforts include numerous walks, runs, bike rides and various collection drives that serve to benefit locally-based organizations that are focused on healthcare or health-related research causes. The Foundation takes great pride in supporting the spirit of volunteerism in the communities in which our associates work and live.
The Beckman Coulter Foundation recognizes the fundraising commitments made by the volunteer teams by matching contributions made by Beckman Coulter, Inc., associates, up to $100 maximum per event.
Only Beckman Coulter Foundation sponsored events are eligible for matching.
Volunteer Matching Process
At the conclusion of the volunteer event, the volunteer lead will submit a Matching Gift Request Form and Worksheet. The Foundation will submit a check to the organization in recognition of the associate volunteers that have participated in the event.
Volunteers in Action
Since 2007, the Beckman Coulter Foundation has been supporting associates’ participation in charitable causes focused around healthcare-related efforts that improve patient health and their quality of life. That participation has come in the form of charitable walks, runs, bike rides, dragon boat races, National Make a Difference Day projects and more.
In 2016, teams of Beckman Coulter associates from around the globe helped to raise over $171,000 in greatly-needed resources to support programs and services that are changing the lives of countless people living with illnesses like cancer, heart disease, leukemia, multiple sclerosis and others.
The video above highlights some of the charitable events supported by the Beckman Coulter Foundation this year. Beckman Coulter associates donated over 4,000 volunteer hours to contribute to these causes. From California to Japan, Switzerland to India, we’re making a difference around the world one step, paddle and pedal at a time.
