Strengthening Communities

Beyond our medicines, we have a long history of social impact through our efforts to strengthen communities around the world.

We invest our time, expertise and resources to make a meaningful difference, with a focus on improving health and education. We encourage our employees to volunteer and give in ways that advance our purpose and are meaningful to them.

We also engage in targeted social issues that affect our business and employees, with an emphasis on our headquarters’ hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana. We advocate for solutions that build stronger communities where people – and companies like Lilly – can prosper and thrive.
