Giving Back at West

  • Nurturing a culture of philanthropy and community involvement is one of the defining characteristics of our company. By the very nature of its focus – addressing current and future healthcare challenges through innovative containment and delivery of needed medications – West is a company committed to making a difference in the global community. Throughout the company's history, West leadership has fostered a culture of giving. West and its employees around the world take their responsibility to give back very seriously, and as a result, donate considerable time and resources to help create a healthier world.

OUR CULTURE OF GIVING

West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc. and its employees endeavor to build upon our culture of giving back by demonstrating a commitment to the communities in which we live and work through financial support and volunteerism. West supports charities focused on children, disabled, hospital/healthcare and STEM education.

West without Borders, our employee-led giving program, builds upon our culture of giving back to the communities in which we live and work.

During the past 12 years, West has focused its philanthropic efforts on charities that aid cancer research and care, STEM education, and children with special needs in the communities where our employees live and work. During this time, West employees have raised more than $3 million for a variety of charities located around the globe through West without Borders and other campaigns.

 

The Herman O. West Foundation, started in 1972, supports our employees through scholarship and matching gift programs.

 

The Herman O. West Foundation Matching Gifts Program is designed to assist employees in supporting post-secondary educational institutions and non-profit organizations of their choice.

 

The Herman O. West Scholarship Program is open to high school seniors of West U.S. employees and provides tuition scholarships for up to four years of post-secondary schooling. One of the scholarships is made possible by a gift to the Foundation from Mr. William S. West’s family in memory of our former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
