Welcome to the Cook Medical Charitable Donations & Grants site. This site provides nonprofit or nonreferral organizations and healthcare professionals, including hospitals, medical schools, and medical societies, with a clear and concise process to request charitable donations and product donations.

Our guidelines

We support advancements in patient care and medicine through indigent care, patient awareness, education, and research. The projects we consider align with these goals.

We will not provide charitable donations, grants, or products in exchange for business. Excessive gifts and other transfers of value make healthcare more expensive and can cause increased burden on public payment systems. Governments and the general public have also shown increasing concern that money, products, and influence from the healthcare industry could interfere with the physician-patient relationship. To avoid this, industry standards and best practices suggest removing sales and marketing from the charitable donations and grants process, which Cook has done with the implementation of our charitable donations and grants process.

For questions regarding our charitable donations and grants process, check our FAQs or contact your Regional Grants Administrator.

For exhibits and sponsorship opportunities, please contact your local sales representative or send an email to

Our philosophy

At Cook Medical, we view charitable donations and  grants as more than financial support – we consider them vital for patient care and healthcare professional education. We also want to be clear about where our monetary and product donations go and the efforts we support.

It is Cook Medical’s policy to comply with laws around the world that apply to public disclosure of our transfers of value to healthcare professionals. We have one global policy that covers them all. Different parts of the world call it different things: the French Sunshine Decree, the U.S. Federal Accountable Care Act § 6002, the Vermont and Massachusetts disclosure laws, and the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid refer to the Open Payment Law.

Global contacts

We have three regional offices that consider charitable donations, grants, in-kind services, and product for eligible organizations and healthcare professionals who want to improve healthcare and find better ways to help patients.
