    As a part of the Amgen Volunteers program, the Amgen Excellence in Volunteering Awards recognize outstanding staff volunteers from Amgen's U.S. and Puerto Rico sites and field-based staff by providing a $5,000 award to each nonprofit organization featured in the winning staff members' applications. To be considered, Amgen staff were asked to complete an application with information about their volunteer efforts and provide a letter of recommendation from the nonprofit organization.

    Amgen Volunteers is an Amgen Foundation program that connects staff members with local volunteer opportunities, and provides $500 Volunteer Service Grants to eligible nonprofit organizations for every 15 hours volunteered by Amgen staff. Since 2007, nearly $2 million has been contributed as a result of staff volunteer efforts in their local communities.

    The Amgen Foundation also matches staff contributions to eligible nonprofit organizations. Since 1993, the Amgen Foundation has matched $26 million in staff donations, resulting in nearly $53 million of support to worthy organizations. In 2010 alone, more than 10,000 gifts were made by Amgen staff members; including the Foundation match, the community received more than $6 million to support their good work.
