Grants and Donations

Providing Funding

We are committed to giving back to the community in a responsible and appropriate way to promote disease awareness, improve patient care and health outcomes and help address the societal burden associated with brain disease.

At Lundbeck, we are dedicated to restoring brain health, so every person can be their best. We understand that our corporate social responsibility extends beyond the medicines we make. Providing Grants and Donations is one way of giving back to our communities and helping people living with brain disease to access healthcare information. Lundbeck receives numerous requests each year for funding and unfortunately, we are not able to provide support to all of them. Each funding request is reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

 

All requests for Grants and Donations are reviewed by an internal Committee. Funding of Grant and Donation requests is provided without an expectation of any benefit in return (excluding corporate recognition in connection with a Grant or Donation, such as placement of our logo at an event or honorable mentions or thank you announcements).

 

Funding requests must align with our therapeutic area(s) of focus of brain disease:

  • neurological and psychiatric disorders within Lundbeck’s therapeutic areas of focus
  • rare brain diseases for which there are few, if any, management options

Funding is never provided as an inducement for prescribing, supplying, recommending buying, selling, accessing, reimbursement or favouring Lundbeck’s products. We expect that recipient organizations will be transparent and clearly acknowledge our funding.

Contributions we consider:

  • financial Grants and Donations
  • in-kind Donations of materials or services, such as second-hand inventory, knowledge or working time

Lundbeck does not provide Grants or Donations for:

  • organizations whose interests do not align with our therapeutic areas of focus
  • events or activities that have already occurred
  • requests associated with a disease/use that is not aligned with Lundbeck’s therapeutic areas
  • requests that are not compliant with applicable laws, the Innovative Medicines Canada Code of Ethical Practices and our internal policies 
  • individual stakeholders, or to an entity that is controlled by an individual stakeholder or its family member, legal representative or agent
  • commercial activities
  • organizations that discriminate based on age, political affiliation, race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation or religious beliefs
  • religious organizations

Lundbeck accepts applications for Grants and Donations on a continuous basis, however, requests should be submitted a minimum of sixty (60) calendar days in advance of a planned activity, or the request may be declined due to time constraints. If approved, Lundbeck will prepare a written agreement that must be signed by both parties, before the Grant or Donation can be provided.
