Lilly Diabetes and Lilly Foundation

Under the umbrella of Eli Lilly and Company, Lilly Diabetes and the Lilly Foundation have provided wide-ranging support to the IDF Life for a Child Programme since its inception in 2001. This has included funds for capacity building, matching funds for Rotary Club activites in support of the Programme and donations from company conferences. Notably, Lilly Diabetes provides free human insulin to the Programme, based on the substantial pledge it made in 2008 to cover the insulin needs of up to 24,000 children in developing countries by 2013. Many Lilly employees also support the Programme through regular personal donations taken directly from their salaries.
