Community

We care deeply about creating a healthier, more equitable and sustainable world by supporting our neighbors in need and engaging the next generation in science, a commitment that spans the globe.

Through our corporate giving, the Biogen Foundation and the dedication of our employees, we helped communities through the challenges of the global pandemic, promoted diversity and inclusion and launched new programs to inspire the next generation of scientists.

Providing Pandemic Relief Globally

The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a personal toll on communities where we live and work, and Biogen immediately stepped up to make a difference. In 2020 the Biogen Foundation committed approximately $12 million to support relief efforts around the world, funding organizations providing food and other immediate humanitarian relief, expanding testing capacity and easing the burden on healthcare systems. As needs evolved, so did our support, with the Biogen Foundation donating to more than 82 organizations across 35 countries.

To help promote health equity, the Biogen Foundation supported CareMessage, the largest patient engagement platform in the U.S., which equips at-risk communities with access to accurate healthcare information using basic text and voice messages – key to reaching people who don’t have broadband.
