Prioritizing social change in healthcare

athenaGives is athenahealth’s global corporate social responsibility program with a mission to provide equitable access to healthcare for all; improve food security; and support science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education. Through athenaGives, we’re addressing the social healthcare challenges that need our attention most.

The program, rooted in a deep understanding of structural health equity, diversity, and inclusion, includes philanthropy, employee volunteering, in-kind product and service donations, along with strategic partnerships with nonprofit organizations whose work aligns with and supports the athenGives mission.

Aiding equitable access to healthcare

Helping underserved communities access the high-quality healthcare they need is an issue of vital importance to us. We partner with nonprofit organizations MedShare and PATH to impact health equity internationally.

Through our athenaGives Free Clinic Partnership Program, we support more than 400 free and charitable clinics in the U.S. with the technology and support services they need to serve their communities. If you are a free and charitable clinic that does not bill insurance, you may be eligible to receive our EHR services for free. 

Shaping the future of accessible healthcare

The clinicians and technologists who will guide accessible healthcare tomorrow need STEM education today. To help make that happen, we’re partnering with educational nonprofits, Girls Who Code and Geeks Rule. In addition, we offer STEM-focused scholarships, mentorships, volunteer initiatives, and more. 

In 2023, we’re partnering with Geeks Rule to sponsor a new Bio Club after-school program.
