Lundbeck US Contributions Portal

Welcome to the Lundbeck US contributions portal. The page describes Lundbeck’s policy and process for requesting financial grants and other support made to foundations, not-for-profit organizations and other worthy charitable organizations.

At Lundbeck, we are tirelessly dedicated to restoring brain health, so every person can be their best. Inspired and driven by this purpose, we are committed to making a difference by developing therapies for complex brain diseases. We understand that our corporate social responsibility extends beyond the medicines we make. We are committed to giving back to the community in a responsible and appropriate way.

There are two types of contributions that Lundbeck supports: sponsorships and charitable donations.

Sponsorships

  • Sponsorships are funding opportunities offered by a 3rd party (other than education grants, fellowships, or other medical funding requests) that also present a tangible benefit to Lundbeck.

  • Tangible benefits further Lundbeck’s business or policy goals and include, but are not limited to journal/newsletter advertisements, exhibit space, banner advertisements, tickets or registrations to a gala, etc., and branding on items associated with the event.

  • Simple corporate recognition (e.g., placement of a company logo on a brochure, podium or website, honorable mentions or verbal/written announcements) does not constitute tangible benefit.

Examples of sponsorships are:

  • Local awareness walks
  • Community education events
  • National meeting or program sponsorships

Charitable Donations

  • Charitable donations are financial or in-kind contributions to a non-profit (i.e. a 501(c)(3) organization) where the primary purpose of the contribution or donation is charitable and the donation is not in exchange for any service or tangible benefit to Lundbeck.

Lundbeck may receive corporate recognition in connection with a charitable donation (e.g., placement of Lundbeck’s corporate logo (i.e., website, event, podium, brochure, honorable mentions or verbal/written thank you announcements).  Charitable contributions can only have corporate recognition and no other tangible benefits. Some charitable donations may be eligible to be funded by the Lundbeck US Charitable Fund. Decisions regarding the funding entity are made prior to approval of a request and require the use of different logos in program materials.

Examples of charitable donations are:

  • Humanitarian and other social programs
  • Healthcare-related programs
  • Science, culture and arts education
  • Events that serve the communities where Lundbeck personnel work and live
