Lilly Strengthening Communities

Lilly has a long, proud heritage of strengthening the communities where we work and live. We do this through giving, volunteering, and focusing on issues that affect our business, such as education. Furthermore, Lilly has a significant impact in its hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana, in the United States.

At the heart of our efforts to strengthen communities are Lilly employees, who donate not only money, but also their time, energy, expertise, and passion in countless ways. As a company, we actively encourage our employees to volunteer and give, and we develop programs that help them make life better for people around the world.

We partner with the GlobalGiving Foundation to offer Lilly employees across the world a customized website where they can support more than 800 global projects that are helping to advance our corporate responsibility goals in the areas of health, hunger, education, and the environment—and have their donations matched by the Lilly Foundation. Through Lilly Global Giving, our employees may select, contribute to, and follow the progress of global programs that are addressing causes they care about.

As we learn about the needs of people in other countries and support projects that help meet those needs, we will expand our understanding of the world, deepen our empathy for the challenges others face, and become part of a global network that provides solutions beyond medicines.
