Lilly Global Giving Puts Power of Philanthropy in Employees' Hands
Date:7/25/2011

utions matched by the Lilly Foundation. Not only does the match make their donations go twice as far, it gives our employees a voice in how we use some of the Lilly Foundation's resources."

Lechleiter noted that the new Lilly Global Giving program complements the Lilly Foundation's U.S. matching gifts program, which allows U.S. employees to have donations matched for select non-profit organizations, such as the United Way.

"Our company is global and so is our role as a good corporate citizen," Lechleiter added. "Lilly Global Giving is a natural extension of our corporate responsibility efforts and our vision to make a significant contribution to humanity by improving global health in the 21st century."

Through Lilly Global Giving, employees may support hundreds of different grassroots programs, including projects that:

  • provide insulin and insulin supplies to patients in Guatemala;
  • improve the diagnosis and care of people with tuberculosis in India;
  • teach farmers in Zambia about animal management and sustainable farming;
  • provide an education for orphaned children in Cameroon; and
  • help restore acres of rainforest in Brazil, among hundreds of other projects.

By participating in Lilly Global Giving, employees may select, contribute to, and follow the progress of global programs that are addressing causes they care about.  

Lilly selected the GlobalGiving Foundation as its partner because of the organization's grassroots approach, which connects donors to charitable projects and puts decision-making in donors' hands. Projects approved by the GlobalGiving Foundation have undergone compliance checks to ensure they meet applicable laws relating to international philanthropy. Since 2002, the GlobalGiving Foundation has channeled more than $44 million in donations to eligible projects and programs across the globe.
