Employee Volunteering, Giving & Support

We strive to inspire and make it easy for our people to do good no matter where they are around the world.

Employee volunteering

Serving our communities is core to who we are as a company. Every year, AbbVie offers corporate-sponsored volunteer activities and gives employee 2 paid days off for personal volunteering. 

Week of Possibilities is our global community service event that unites employees around the world with a single purpose: to give back to our local communities through volunteering. 

In 2022, thousands of employees volunteered across more than 50 countries and territories, resulting in:


meals provided to local foodbanks and grassroots organization


students and 1,800 teachers in 76 schools benefited from renovated learning spaces


books distributed to students


community partners supported

Our partners

We team up with nonprofits around the world to give back to our local communities.

Employee giving and matching

AbbVie offers a year-round giving program that matches the charitable donations employees make to eligible nonprofit organizations through the AbbVie Foundation. Through the program, the AbbVie Foundation matches employee donations dollar for dollar, up to $5,000 per employee per year.

Employee support

Through the AbbVie Employee Assistance Fund, a part of the AbbVie Foundation, we assist employees at two pivotal moments: when a child goes to college and when a disaster strikes. 

AbbVie Employee Relief Program 
When the unexpected happens—a large-scale or personal disaster or financial hardship—AbbVie Employee Relief Program is available to provide financial assistance to employees. With more than $2.2 million in awards in 2022, the Employee Assistance Fund supported hundreds of AbbVie employees, including those impacted by Hurricanes Fiona and Ian.

AbbVie Possibilities Scholarship 
The AbbVie Foundation offers the AbbVie Possibilities Scholarship to help children of employees achieve their full potential through post-secondary education. In 2022, the program awarded scholarships to 327 students from more than 26 countries and territories.
