Building Healthier Communities Through Philanthropy and Employee Engagement

Perrigo believes in making a positive impact in the ways we engage with our communities.

Our employees enhance their engagement and job satisfaction by leveraging their time and talent in community-based initiatives. Their efforts are augmented by philanthropic contributions by the Perrigo Company Charitable Foundation.


Donation of Products

Through our partners International Aid and Medical Teams International, Perrigo has donated $19.3 million dollars of products to support everything from humanitarian efforts to disaster relief. Perrigo donated $2.7 million of that during 2021 alone. 

Additionally, products are often donated by both the company and employees to support local causes.  For example, in December 2018, Michigan-based employees joined the Company in donating $43,000 in OTC medicines and infant formula to replenish local food pantries. 

Holding Ourselves Accountable

Several examples of Perrigo’s volunteer and giving efforts are highlighted in our latest Sustainability & ESG report.
