SERVE COMMUNITIES

Giving Back 
in Multiple Ways

Alexion has long been invested in our communities. In 2019, we refined our approach to be more focused so that our charitable giving may have the maximum positive impact. We do this through two main impact areas: the Alexion Charitable Foundation and Corporate Giving. These avenues are separate from our patient support programs and our direct engagement with various patient organizations.

Alexion Charitable Foundation

The mission of the Alexion Charitable Foundation is to offer promise and cultivate a sense of belonging – particularly for people affected by a rare disease – through initiatives that advance emotional well-being, educational opportunities and economic relief. There are two areas through which we provide funding:
  • Rare Belonging™ unifies a suite of funding priorities to benefit people affected by a rare disease, including patients, their families and caregivers. It aims to advance emotional well-being and educational opportunities, and provide relief for critical needs.
  • Local Needs Grants go to organizations in the communities where Alexion has a major presence, broadening our support to helping individuals beyond the rare disease community. This enables the Foundation to positively impact the communities where we live and work.

Corporate Giving

Alexion’s Corporate Giving mission is to positively impact our local communities — with a particular focus on people who are disadvantaged or disenfranchised — through initiatives that advance emotional well-being, provide educational opportunities, and promote diversity and inclusion in society and critical institutions.
