Giving Back to Communities Worldwide

Hologic Costa Rica's charitable community outreach efforts include a program that cultivates children's interest in STEM education.

Hologic’s philanthropy and volunteerism focus on strengthening health, boosting access to STEM education and increasing social and racial equity.

Hologic makes a positive difference for patients, underserved women, innovation-minded students and many others everywhere, every day. To maximize our impact in ways that align with our business, we concentrate on giving back in three categories across communities where our employees live and work:

  • Women’s health and other healthcare fields in which we operate.
  • STEM education, especially students from underrepresented backgrounds.
  • Social and racial equity, especially in healthcare.

Employee Volunteerism

Our employees give back to their communities with donations of money, time and talent. Some highlights:

  • Hologic’s regulatory and quality teams around the world participated in a cervical cancer fundraising campaign.
  • Our team in Korea created reusable cloth sanitary napkins for underserved women.
  • Our service team in the United Kingdom hiked 26 miles to support a charity that helps cancer patients and their caregivers.
  • Our teams around the world joined walks to help raise funds for breast cancer research and patient-support services.
  • Our employees in San Diego filled backpacks with school supplies for underserved students and wrote handmade cards for seniors.

Hologic supports these efforts in two important ways:

Partners in Giving 
A program that donates up to $1,000 each year in “matching” contributions to each employee’s chosen 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Volunteer Time Off 
A benefit that allows employees to spend a fully paid day doing community service.

Project Health Equity

Despite remarkable advances in medical technology, health disparities in the United States persist. In 2023, Hologic recommitted to doing our part through our renamed Project Health Equity initiative, which reflects our broader mission to spread the word about the importance of preventive care, clinical resources and access to care for underserved communities.
