Since our founding in 1901, Walgreen Co. and its employees have recognized the connection between strong communities and good business. The Walgreen motto, "The Pharmacy America Trusts," reflects our belief in ethical business practices and our respect for the dedication of our employees in improving the quality of life in their communities. As our company grows, and we bring our stores to new markets and new neighborhoods, we bring with us a tradition of supporting the health needs of our patients. Because we cannot support every worthy program, we have developed these guidelines to help eligible nonprofit organizations understand our priorities, values, and limitations.
Organizations seeking funding should have a specific focus on improving:
Health is our major area of focus, and the largest share of our annual budget is allocated to programs that address the health needs of our patients.
Walgreens selects national nonprofit organizations that focus on medical research, treatment, and service for diseases such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis; etc.
Because Walgreens contributes to many local United Way campaigns across the nation, United Way supported agencies are not eligible to apply for additional support from Walgreens.
Walgreens does contribute to faith-based organizations provided the contributions are not used for inherently religious purposes or to serve a limited constituency. Our contributions to faith-based organizations are designed to enhance services to the larger community in which an organization operates.
Walgreens charitable funds will not be used to support:
