Corporate Giving

Each year, Biogen commits significant financial support through a variety of corporate giving initiatives that positively impact the communities where we live and work.

Grants & Sponsorships

Biogen’s global grants and giving strategy aims to catalyze scientific innovation, address unmet patient needs, and advance medical and disease education through funding a variety of programs and initiatives.

The quarterly Grants review cycle has now come to a close (on October 31st) and we will temporarily defer the acceptance of any new grant submission until 2024. The next review cycle will reopen in early 2024. Please refrain from any submissions until that time. If you submitted a proposal prior to October 31st, and are awaiting a response, you will receive a response by November 10th.
