Corporate Giving and Support

At Daiichi Sankyo, Inc., we believe our business extends beyond the discovery and development of therapies for unmet medical needs. It's also our mission to make a positive difference in the communities in which we live and work. Not because others expect it of us, but because we expect it of ourselves.Individual and collective contributions to our communities are an integral part of the fabric of Daiichi Sankyo.

Daiichi Sankyo corporate giving and support initiatives are diverse and include charitable contributions, product donations, grants and sponsorships. Daiichi Sankyo provides corporate support to patient and professional organizations and institutions for programs and activities that:
