Helping Communities in a Time of Need
In 2018, Pfizer provided support for communities affected by Hurricanes Florence and Michael, the California wildfires, and the earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia. Through the Pfizer Foundation, cash grants were provided to key organizations leading relief efforts on the ground, and a one-to-one match was extended for monetary donations made by global Pfizer colleagues to support these organizations. We also implemented disaster relief protocols for our patient assistance programs, allowing existing patients who get their medicines through a Pfizer patient assistance program to request early refills or new shipping addresses, and temporarily waiving financial documentation requirements for eligible new patients who may have lost their paperwork in these crises or their aftermath.
The Pfizer Foundation is a charitable organization established by Pfizer Inc. It is a separate legal entity from Pfizer Inc. with distinct legal restrictions.
