Corporate Giving

MaxMind and its founder gladly donate over 50% of corporate profits to charities.

Global health and development

A dollar can go a long way to improving people's health and income in the developing world. Here are a few examples:

  • Medication to treat parasitic worms improves child health, school participation, and income later in life. It costs about 50 cents to treat a child per year.
  • Fortification of salt with iodine improves cognitive development in iodine deficient children for only few cents per person, per year.

We help fund:

We are funding research into gene drives with the potential to help eradicate several major diseases:

  • Schistosomiasis with the Brindley Lab at George Washington University.
  • Zika, dengue, chikungunya and yellow fever through Omar Akbari's research on a major vector, Aedes albopictus, at UC Riverside.

Increasing access to contraceptives through voluntary means supports the healthy timing and spacing of pregnancies. Pregnancies that are spaced at least two years apart result in reduced infant mortality. Contraceptives also save lives by reducing unintended high risk pregnancies and abortions.
