Doing our part during the COVID-19 crisis means going beyond our vital day-to-day work to advance science. We’re committing $42 million to provide immediate and long-term support to our communities, including low-income households and people of color disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. This support includes emergency response grants as well as funds for longer-term recovery efforts to mitigate ongoing challenges posed by the breadth and depth of this health crisis. Learn more about the three principles that have guided our approach to giving from Kristin Campbell Reed, our Senior Director of Corporate and Employee Giving.
We take the health and safety of our patients, customers, employees and local communities very seriously, and we are actively responding to the global COVID-19 pandemic. Learn more here:
