Lilly Surpasses United Way 2010 Campaign Goal

INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 4, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer John Lechleiter Ph.D. today presented an $11.6 million check to the United Way.  The check represents the contributions of Lilly's U.S. employees and retirees and a matching gift amount from the Lilly Foundation. The funds were raised for the Central Indiana chapter and other United Way chapters' 2010 fundraising campaigns. Lilly's gift locally represents nearly 25 percent of the United Way of Central Indiana's 2010 annual campaign goal.  

"Lilly is proud to support an incredible community partnership in our work with the United Way and all of its agencies," said Lechleiter.  "It is clear that together, Lilly and the United Way are making a real difference; bringing positive change to our local communities, one person, one family, one neighborhood at a time."

Lilly's annual United Way campaign raised $100,000 above the 2010 goal of $11.5 million.  Lilly recognized some 200 volunteers at a luncheon held at the Baxter YMCA.

"Lilly employees and retirees have unselfishly given their leadership, time, and money, year after year," Lechleiter noted.  "Their support has been especially needed in this tough economic climate, and I deeply appreciate their generosity."
