People – Philanthropy & Our Communities

By way of both the Perrigo Company Charitable Foundation, as well as sponsored volunteer efforts by the company and our employees, Perrigo is committed to supporting and enhancing the communities in which we operate. In addition to the money donated by the Foundation, employees exhibited their passion for community service through donations of time and money to a wide variety of causes, notably around education, healthcare, and educating youth on topics such as science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

The Perrigo Foundation

Since 2000, the Perrigo Company Charitable Foundation has been supporting the people and communities in and around the areas we operate globally. True to Perrigo's mission of providing Quality Affordable Healthcare Products® the Foundation's mission is to provide financial support to nonprofit organizations that enhance the health, well-being and education of individuals and families in communities that Perrigo serves.

The foundation also seeks to support healthcare and education initiatives that affect our own employees. The Foundation funds a college scholarship program for the dependent children of our eligible employees and provides grants and scholarships to the many school districts in regions in which Perrigo operates.

Donation of Medicines

Through our partners International Aid and Medical Teams International, Perrigo has donated a number of needed medicines over the years, whether for disaster relief or humanitarian aid.

Employee Volunteerism

By volunteering, people donate their most valuable and finite resource: their time. Volunteering is more than just giving back to the community or making a person's day shine brighter. It's about pushing yourself out of your comfort zone to involve yourself in something you might not normally see or do. Volunteering helps develop experience and skills that can often be applied professionally. It also builds networks, perspectives and a level of engagement that few other types of activities can. Because of this, Perrigo encourages employees to get involved in their community.

As a way to encourage and recognize community involvement, the Perrigo Foundation established the Caring for Communities (C4C) volunteer program in 2016, which makes cash donations to those charities where employees volunteer their time.

Sparking Interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)

Every year, a number of activities took place to support the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education of youths in communities where we operate. Many Perrigo scientists, engineers, researchers and statisticians chose to apply their knowledge and experience from the job to stimulate and educate interest in STEM careers to local youths.
