When Airborne Lifeline needed financial support, The Merck Company Foundation was there to help with an extremely generous donation!
Established in 1957 by Merck, The Merck Company Foundation is a U.S.-based, private charitable foundation and is Merck’s chief source of funding support to qualified non-profit, charitable organizations. The Foundation marked its 50th anniversary in December of 2007.
