Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service, this week named Regeneron to “The Civic 50” list of most community-minded organizations. The Westchester-based bio-technology company was selected based on four dimensions of community engagement programs: investment, integration, institutionalization and impact.
Regeneron’s citizenship and community involvement programs include the title sponsorship of the Science Talent Search, the nation’s most prestigious science and math competition for high school seniors, for which Regeneron has pledged $100 million over 10 years. Regeneron also supports many local and national initiatives for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education, with a commitment to supporting top student talent, diversifying the talent pool and increasing access to STEM education for underrepresented populations
“We are honored to be added to The Civic 50, which celebrates the longstanding commitment the people of Regeneron have to giving back,” said Hala Mirza, Vice President, Corporate Communications and Citizenship at Regeneron. “Our citizenship programs take many shapes, but share a focus on driving meaningful change for important communities.“
The Civic 50 winners were announced on June 20 at the Points of Light Conference on Volunteering and Service in Seattle.
