Community Impact

True to our corporate mission, we seek to develop the communities where our associates live and work, so that individuals have access to the tools they need to be educated, healthy and productive. Listed below are priority funding areas for our community initiatives.


Health and wellness initiatives

A keen knowledge of personal health and the factors that affect it is vital to improving medical conditions that plague individuals across the globe. By combining knowledge with prevention and early detection of chronic conditions, we believe there is true potential to achieve reformed healthcare.


Cerner Charitable Foundation

Founded in 1995, Cerner Charitable Foundation is dedicated to building healthier tomorrows and stronger communities around the world. The foundation provides equitable access to healthcare for children through individual medical grants and health and wellness programming.

Through engaging volunteer opportunities for associates and community initiatives, the foundation is reducing disparities, developing tomorrow’s transformative leaders and improving communities around the world. To learn more about Cerner Charitable Foundation’s community grants, please visit the Cerner Charitable Foundation website. When reviewing requests for support, priority is given to nonprofit organizations that have a measurable impact to the community.

Cerner Charitable Foundation supports the healthcare industry and veteran communities through strategic grants and initiatives.

With a vision of an equitable world where individuals and communities thrive, Cerner Charitable Foundation serves as the primary philanthropic organization supported by Cerner associates, business partners and community members.

In its a rich 25-year history, the foundation has improved the lives of nearly 660,000 people in 93 countries.


STEM education

We believe in building 21st century skills through real-world student learning. Through a three-pronged approach of advocacy, exploration and engagement, Cerner is investing in the education of tomorrow's technical workforce. Each year, Cerner supports students from all over the Kansas City area through our K-12 and university partnerships and programs. Associates also lend their time to job shadow programs, educational externships, mentoring and more.

Regional development

We value entrepreneurism and how to develop it in the areas of life sciences, technology, innovation, and scientific research.

We support organizations that promote business and economic development in their respective community. Cerner is a proud member of the Missouri, Kansas, Pennsylvania, and Greater Kansas City Chambers of Commerce. We also lend our support to local development councils and life sciences institutes.
