Date:1/14/2010

INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) today announced that it will provide donations of medicines and money for victims of the catastrophic earthquake in Haiti on January 12.

"The current situation in Haiti is a profound human tragedy," said Robert L. Smith, president of the Lilly Foundation. "The significant number of casualties and widespread property damage require an urgent and compassionate response.  We hope Lilly's contributions will help ease some of the suffering, and aid in the recovery efforts."  

Lilly has initially pledged $250,000 in direct cash contributions.  Half of this amount will be for short-term relief, with the balance donated over the next 12 months in support of the longer-term rebuilding efforts.  The company will also match contributions of its U.S. employees, up to a total of $250,000.  In addition, Lilly will work with non-governmental organization partners working in Haiti on appropriate donations of medicines.
