Community

Incyte is committed to being an active participant in improving our community. Incyte Involved includes three initiatives focused on philanthropy as well as employee and community engagement. These include the Incyte Charitable Giving Foundation, the Community Service Program and the Matching Gifts Program.

The Incyte Charitable Giving Foundation is dedicated to supporting charitable organizations serving the needs of local Delaware communities focused on two areas – Oncology Patient Support and Resources and Community Partnerships.

In 2018, The Incyte Charitable Giving Foundation launched the Incyte Cancer Care Assistance Fund for Delaware (ICCAFD) in collaboration with Cancer Support Community Delaware. The ICCAFD provides emergency financial assistance for cancer patients, their caregivers and family members living in Delaware and cover bills such as rent, mortgage, car insurance and the cost of groceries. Cancer Support Community Delaware independently processes applications and determines financial need for applicants who are facing financial hardships due to cancer.

Our Community Service Program provides our colleagues with paid time off to volunteer in their communities. We believe that by providing this benefit, we are supporting our colleagues as they support causes that are personal to them. Along the same lines, we also support our colleagues’ charitable interests through our Matching Gifts Program, which matches 100 percent of donations up to a predetermined cap each year for our U.S. and European-based employees.

"I volunteer with Serviam Girls Academy to help them identify opportunities to introduce underserved young girls and teens to STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) subjects. We identify opportunities for scientists and science-based companies to meet with the girls to learn more about possible careers, and recently, Incyte hosted the group here. Seeing how involved Incyte is in the community here in Delaware has inspired me to become more involved as well."
