- Charitable Giving
Our Charitable Giving Philosophy:
At AmerisourceBergen we recognize that the economic, social and physical environment in which our company operates can affect our success as an enterprise. We also recognize that our actions can have an impact on the communities in which we operate.
Therefore, we acknowledge our responsibility as a good corporate citizen to contribute some of our resources back to our communities.
By doing so, we will:
• Help the less fortunate.
• Support our mission in healthcare.
• Enhance our image with our communities, customers, associates and employment recruits.
• With that understanding, we identify three fundamental elements in our Charitable Contributions Philosophy:
First, the company must be financially successful. The foundation of AmerisourceBergen Corporation’s corporate citizenship is our ongoing financial success. Our financial success as an enterprise will be a major factor in determining the level of resources that we can devote to charitable contributions.
Second, we must understand and be sensitive to the legitimate interests of our various constituencies – including shareholders, communities, neighbors, associates and customers.
Third, we will apply initiative and creativity as well as financial support towards improving the economic, social and physical well-being of the environment in which our company operates, and will encourage and support the efforts of our associates to make their own contributions as well.
The mission for the AmerisourceBergen Charitable Contributions Program is to serve local institutions and agencies in communities where the company operates through direct donations, volunteer support and healthcare education. Our contributions program focuses on improving the mental, social and physical well-being of the elderly populations in those communities. Special consideration for contributions will be given to qualifying programs in which AmerisourceBergen associates are involved through volunteer efforts or other active support.
At this time, AmerisourceBergen is not accepting any unsolicited proposals or requests for funding. We continue our support through local United Way organizations and other international charities to help individuals in need.
Our Associates Involvement
Across the country, associates and different business units are involved with several organizations – giving their time, energy and financial resources. In the past few years, their efforts have helped to raise awareness and funds for specific medical conditions, assist the less fortunate, provide educational assistance to students, and support community-wide efforts. AmerisourceBergen recognizes their diverse commitments and applauds their involvement.
