How we can help
No matter the struggle, The Clara Abbott Foundation is here to provide financial support when
Abbott employees and retirees need it the most.
For eligible Abbott families who are struggling to afford their basic needs, we provide need-based grants to help them meet their financial obligations.
We provide need-based scholarships to help the dependent children of Abbott employees attend accredited post-secondary schools.
When disaster strikes, we are there to support Abbott families with financial assistance to access food, clothing, shelter or other essential living needs.
