Employee Involvement

Cardinal Health employees are all in for good, not just one day a year but every single day!

Our employees give and volunteer all year long.

Our employees are deeply involved in strengthening their communities through volunteerism. They serve on the boards of nonprofit organizations, donate resources and raise money to find cures for cancer, heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and MS. Our employees donate to food banks and support our veterans. We encourage employees to volunteer for causes that they’re most passionate about—and they do: More than 70 percent of our employees report being actively involved in volunteering in the communities where they live and work. And, through personal contributions of dollars, Foundation matches and grants, our employees have generated more than $18 million for their communities since 2008.

Some of the 2,000+ organizations our employees support nationwide include:

  • Alzheimer's Association: Cardinal Health employees support many events across the country to raise funds for research and caregiver support for those affected by Alzheimer's.
  • American Heart Association (AHA): Cardinal Health has a national network of employee volunteers who walk and raise funds for AHA in their local communities. Our employees have raised more than $750,000 to support AHA.
  • Big Brothers Big Sisters: Cardinal Health has a national network of employees who volunteer as community and school-based big 'brothers' and 'sisters.' They also raise money through Bowl for Kids’ Sake and other fundraisers.
  • Our Cyclotron Team is a national network of employees who bike to support organizations including the Diabetes Tour de Cure, MS bike tours, Pelotonia cancer efforts in central Ohio and VeloSano in Cleveland. This network not only raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for research and services, it also supports a community of riders who are living healthily.
  • Feeding America: Cardinal Health employees, enterprise-wide, collect thousands of pounds of food each year for local food banks, pantries and soup kitchens, helping communities put food on the tables of those in need.
  • Fisher House Foundation: Cardinal Health is proud to honor our veterans and their families through our support of Fisher House Foundation. For more than 25 years, Fisher House has provided a free “home away from home” for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers. Cardinal Health employees, customers and suppliers raise money to help build new Fisher Houses, and volunteer their time and talent to support existing Fisher Houses across the country.
