About the Schering-Plough Foundation

The Schering-Plough Foundation is a non-profit membership corporation. It was established in 1955 and is sponsored by Schering-Plough Corporation. The areas of support of the Foundation are described below.

Medical & Allied Education

The primary objective of the Foundation is to support institutional activities and programs devoted to improving the delivery of health care through quality medical and allied education. Pharmacy education is of special interest in this category and continues to receive increased support as part of the Foundation's giving.

General Education

The Foundation supports quality programs in higher and secondary education through funding institutions and programs where Schering-Plough has a major presence.

Health Care

The Foundation assists health care institutions and programs that benefit the company's employees and their families. Support is also given to specialized facilities and health care programs.

Culture & the Arts

Support in this area is given mainly to those organizations in areas where Schering-Plough has major facilities.

Social/Civic Welfare & Public Policy

In an effort to support a spectrum of needs and concerns in Schering-Plough's communities, the Foundation funds programs in the areas of social/civic welfare and in public policy.

Matching Gift Program

The Foundation also has a matching gift program through which it matches contributions of Schering-Plough employees and members of its Board of Directors to accredited colleges and universities, secondary schools, hospitals, hospices and educational or hospital funds.

Policy & Procedure

The Foundation considers grant requests from tax-exempt, non-profit organizations located in the United States, or its possessions, whose goals and activities fall within the stated objectives and areas of interest. All requests for funding must be in writing and on the letterhead of the requesting organization. Requests must include the following information:

•   The specific purpose for which funding is being sought;
•   Background information on the requesting organization;
•   A statement of the major programs and services rendered by the organization;
•   Evidence of the organization's tax-exempt status;
•   The last audited financial statements;
•   A program budget, if the application relates to a specific activity;
•   Supportive material, including a copy of the organization's annual report, is desirable.
•   It is customary for an organization, whether funded or not funded, to wait one year before submitting a subsequent proposal.

The Foundation's Board of Trustees meets once each year, in the fall. To be considered for support, completed requests or proposals must be received by July 1. Requests are reviewed regularly. If the request is to be considered by the Board of Trustees, it will be held for a decision in the next funding cycle. Multi-year pledges are made periodically. In such cases, a funding schedule is established for completing commitments. For annual support, approved grants are normally paid in the fourth quarter of the year.

Grants are not made to individuals.
