The Mylan Charitable Foundation was established in the U.S. in 2002. It operates independent of Mylan’s business operations and supports efforts to enhance the quality of life and address unmet needs in and around the communities where Mylan operates, primarily by supporting child-focused issues in the areas of education, social services and health, among other charitable causes. Over the past 16 years the foundation has made grants totaling more than $10 million to more than 100 nonprofit organizations. Internally Mylan has a U.S. donations policy and committee that manages contributions made in that country.
2017 was a year of dramatic weather in the U.S., and several Mylan locations suffered the effects of devastating storms and flooding. To support our communities, employees and their families, Mylan provided access to much-needed medicine by working with charitable distribution partners Direct Relief, Americares and Heart to Heart International to make available more than six million doses of antibiotics and medicines to treat heart, thyroid, digestive and respiratory conditions. We also chartered a cargo aircraft that carried more than 36,000 pounds of essential items needed by residents and Mylan employees in Puerto Rico and partnered with SBP, a national disaster recovery organization, to support their on-the-ground efforts in Texas. We donated more than $80,000 to SBP to assist in statewide efforts.
