We’re interested in partnering with organizations that are committed to solving problems, measuring results, and improving upon their efforts. Beyond grants, we often offer expertise and volunteer support to our partners.

Our charitable giving strategy focuses on three core objectives:

1. Advance Scientific Knowledge

We support all stages of the STEM career pathway - from getting elementary-aged students excited about science, to increasing access to hands-on learning in high school, to providing undergraduate college scholarships. In addition, we support ongoing education and collaboration among the scientific and medical communities through grants to scientific meetings, independent medical education and fellowships for advanced study by clinical and research professionals.

2. Enhance Health Outcomes

  • We support research institutions, patient organizations, and community-based organizations as part of our commitment to total health.
  • Through grants directed toward our therapeutic areas of focus we support work that increases disease awareness, expands access to early detection and diagnosis, strengthens clinical trial enrollment and improves treatment quality and patient support.
  • We donate to independent co-pay assistance foundations, which provide financial assistance to patients who cannot afford the out-of-pocket costs associated with their medicines.
  • We are also committed to disrupting the onset of disease by investing in preventative health.
