Consider the following items when submitting your application:
To start your grant request, go to grants.abbvie.com. For more details about the application process, see below:
All requests for funding must be submitted through our online portal, and at least 60 days before the start date of an activity.
Here are a few terms used in the grant portal you need to know before submitting your application:
The grant portal will not allow a program start date to be entered after the 60-day deadline (e.g. if your program starts on April 1 and you are trying to submit the request in March or April, the portal will give you an error message and not allow you to proceed with the application). Please contact the Independent Education at (877) 228-7177 or [email protected] if you require assistance.
For information and step-by-step assistance with submitting your request, please review the Requestor Training Guide. All informational documents and FAQ's can be found here.
Once the request has been submitted, you will receive an email confirmation.
AbbVie carefully considers every grant or charitable donation request. Criteria for awarding a grant or charitable donation includes but is not limited to:
We work to ensure that a decision will be made by the “Decision Requested by Date.” If you have questions please contact the Independent Education at (877) 228-7177 or [email protected]. If an application is incomplete or funding type does not match the original request, a Request for Additional Information (RFAI) will be sent to the requestor.
If not approved, you will be sent an email outlining the reason for denial.
If approved, you will be sent an email confirmation with instructions to login to the grant portal, review, and electronically sign the contractual agreement.
The contractual agreement must be signed by all parties, prior to the start date of the event to be considered a fully executed contract. Once signed you will receive an email confirming the payment has been released.
The payment will come via check or electronic transfer (ACH). Payment address and account information must be provided in the request. If you have questions or the payment information has changed, please contact the Independent Education to update our records and the grant portal upon contract acknowledgement.
You will receive the check in regular USPS mail in four to six weeks and the electronic transfer to your account within two to four days.
Once the program has ended, you will need to reconcile the request. Outcomes can be submitted at a later date.
If the request is not reconciled 90 days after the completion of the program, all parties in your organization utilizing the same tax ID number will be prevented from having their request approved.
If you have any questions regarding the decision or would like to check the status of your request, please contact the Independent Education at (877) 228-7177 or [email protected].
