While Merck’s business innovations often benefit society, we also realize that, as a responsible citizen, we have an additional commitment to the community. Giving back to our communities has been a core part of our culture since our founding, and we continue to increase our commitments and support today. For more than 25 years, we have contributed to society in ways that reflect our values and priorities as a company. We engage with the community in a variety of ways, from funding deserving science, education and environmental organizations through our Giving Program and providing in-kind donations to those in need to employee volunteerism and partnerships with key stakeholders in the community.
In over 25 years we have donated more than $20 million to deserving organizations through grants, matching gifts and in-kind equipment donations.
