Message from Amgen CEO Bob Bradway on Ukraine and Amgen Foundation Grant

On March 3, 2022, Amgen CEO Bob Bradway sent the below message to employees globally expressing sadness over events unfolding in Ukraine and outlining how the Amgen Foundation will offer support to the Ukrainian people through a pair of disaster relief grants, and through a program to match donations made by Amgen staff to select charities.

We are saddened by the events unfolding in Ukraine. While we do not have staff in Ukraine, as a global organization, we have many staff of Ukrainian and Russian nationality or descent as well as business activity in both countries. We are actively monitoring this situation with our priority being the safety of our staff and the patients in the region who rely on our medicines.

To assist the Ukrainian people, the Amgen Foundation has approved two disaster relief grants of $250,000 each to International Medical Corps and Project Hope.

We have also opened the Amgen Foundation Disaster Relief Matching Gifts Program, allowing all staff globally to receive the Foundation match when they donate to select charities to support humanitarian efforts related to the conflict in Ukraine.

We are a mission- and values-based company. This perspective transcends borders. We have supported one another and stayed focused on serving patients throughout the pandemic, and I ask that we continue to do so again now.

Thank you, as always, for the important work you do every day.

Best Regards,

Bob Bradway
Amgen CEO
