Donations

UCB in the U.S. makes proactive contributions to support the overall missions of recognized nonprofit organizations. We support organizations or entities whose mission is to raise awareness of those with serious disease, to provide resources, education and improved care to patients and their caregivers, or to build strong communities in areas where UCB operates.

At this time, UCB generally does not accept unsolicited requests for charitable donations from external organizations.

For future consideration, you can submit a letter of request, along with information on the mission of your organization, priorities, and accomplishments to U.S. Corporate Communications at uscommunications@ucb.com.

If your organization is selected as a recipient of a charitable donation, you will receive a letter from UCB U.S. Corporate Communications confirming the donation amount and the process for accessing the funds. Our proactive giving model allows us to concentrate time and resources on furthering our mission to improve the lives of people living with severe diseases.

Grants

UCB in the U.S. provides educational grants for independent, accredited and non-accredited programs that foster increased understanding of scientific, clinical, and healthcare issues and contribute to the enhancement of patient care.

All programs must be non-promotional in nature and should be focused on healthcare professionals, patients, and/or caregivers.
