Lilly and United Way Make Measurable Impact Together


In 2016, Lilly celebrated its 140th anniversary. For nearly 100 of those years, we’ve proudly partnered with United Way to lift families and communities – to offer new hope and create new beginnings. In fact, 2016 represented a new beginning
for Lilly and the United Way when we signed a strategic partnership agreement to drive
positive, measurable social change. Going well beyond fundraising, the agreement
identifies areas of focus, where together we can have the greatest impact. We’re working to ensure
children from lower income communities have access to quality Pre-K, a cornerstone for
future success in the classroom and beyond. By enlisting Lilly employees to help third
graders and prove their reading skills through ReadUp. We’ve matched more than 50 Lilly teams with United
Way agency partners to help them advance their missions, improve their facilities, and serve
more people. Working with United Way Worldwide to improve
health for people affected by TB in countries where this preventable, treatble disease is
still present. Fundraising will always be an important part
of our relationship. In 2016, we set a goal of raising $14 million
through 10,000 donors. We raised a record-breaking $14.8 million. We look forward to partnering in new ways
with greater impact. United, together, we aim even higher.
