Allergan plc, a leading global pharmaceutical company, today announced that The Allergan Foundation has awarded a total of $10 million in charitable grants in 2019. The grants were donated to more than 400 organizations in 32 states as part of The Allergan Foundation's commitment to providing a lasting and positive impact in the communities in which Allergan employees live and work. The 2019 grants bring The Allergan Foundation's total donations in its 21-year history to approximately $95 million, including $45 million since 2015.
"We at The Allergan Foundation are honored and proud to offer our support to the many organizations striving to make a difference in the health and wellbeing of our communities," said Brent Saunders, Chairman of The Allergan Foundation and Chairman and CEO of Allergan. "We are privileged to work closely with many of these organizations whose missions are focused on Allergan's key therapeutic areas including eye care, central nervous system, breast health and gastroenterology. We are delighted to contribute to their resources for improving patient treatment and care."
"Many of the groups supported by The Allergan Foundation are small, grassroots organizations with a focus on fulfilling a specific need in their community. Without their selfless effort and dedication, many of these needs would remain unfulfilled," said Alex Kelly, President of The Allergan Foundation and Executive Vice President of Corporate Affairs at Allergan.
