This pledge will support families and communities affected by the tornadoes that blazed through Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Alabama, and Georgia on March 2, 2012.
Robert L. Smith, president of the Lilly Foundation said “Our hearts go out to those affected by these tornadoes, including those in our home state of Indiana. We’ve been moved by the acts of kindness by people who have sought to help those in need. Today, we join the ranks of many others in answering the call to help”
In addition to this pledge, through its matching gifts program, the Lilly Foundation will provide a 1:1 match of employee donations to the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army. The Foundation is encouraging U.S. Lilly employees who want to donate to tornado relief efforts to do so through one of these organizations, thereby doubling the impact of their giving.
