Amplifying Elanco's impact

We thrive to make a positive, measurable impact in the communities in which we operate. The Elanco Foundation is one of the ways we give back.

Established in 2019, the Elanco Foundation is the first private corporate foundation in the animal health industry, focused on improving the well-being of animals, people and the planet.

It works alongside Elanco's Healthy Purpose™, our Sustainability and ESG framework, to amplify Elanco’s impact around the world.

The Elanco Foundation is committed to advancing sustainable growth of communities around the world by focusing on two strategic priorities: food security and the human-animal bond.

Human-Animal Bond

We aim to promote the health and well-being of both animals and pets, with an emphasis on owner training and education, as well as increased access to quality veterinary products and services, by investing in programs that target service dogs and assistance animals.

food security

Food Security

We aim to ensure everyone on the planet has access to high-quality meat, milk, fish and eggs by investing in programs focused on increasing access to protein for underserved communities.



We help protect our planet and its resources, promoting sustainable livestock farming practices and environmental conservation.

The Elanco Foundation accepts requests for charitable support on an invitation-only basis.

Together with our supporters, we have been able to serve over 151 million meals to individuals and families in need since March 2020. Working alongside the Elanco Foundation was a significant moment for us at Akshaya Patra, as we work under a unified mission to alleviate hunger. We believe that food assistance plays a crucial role in humanitarian disaster relief efforts.
