The Amgen Foundation: A History of Giving
One of the most important vehicles for Amgen's corporate philanthropy is the Amgen Foundation. The Foundation is an integral component of Amgen's commitment to dramatically improve people's lives. To date, the Foundation has donated over $200 million to nonprofit organizations across the United States, Puerto Rico and Europe that align with the Foundation's mission.
The Amgen Foundation’s philanthropic efforts are focused on the following areas:
The Foundation is committed to raising the value of science literacy for both students and teachers. In this area, the Foundation seeks to identify programs that provide pivotal hands-on science experiences for students, as well as those that seek to support teacher quality and provide professional development.
The Foundation dedicates substantial resources to strengthening and enriching the community, thereby making it a more desirable place to live and work. This investment helps to ensure that essential health and social services, environmental programs, the excitement of the sciences and the richness of the arts are more accessible to all members of the community.
