Making a Difference by Giving Back
Community involvement at Endo is a living, breathing measure of how we make a difference. It's about combining employee involvement with strong organizational support to improve countless lives. We know that uniting together as an Endo family with one spirit and one goal we can create a positive impact in the greater communities where we live and work throughout the world. At Endo, we strive to improve the lives of the patients we serve, and just as importantly, we as an organization are committed to improving the lives of those in need residing in our local neighborhoods through our ongoing charitable efforts and employee volunteer programs.
Endo offers a number of opportunities for our employees to give back, including volunteer and donation efforts, as well as through the company's U.S. Matching Gifts Program that matches U.S. employees' donations dollar-for-dollar up to $1,000 per employee per year.
Endo employees remain committed to making a difference throughout the year by supporting a variety of giving back endeavors. Below highlights a number of charitable initiatives we have held globally:
