Grants, Sponsorship, and Giving
Insmed may provide grant funding to support health, education, and patient care objectives associated with our core therapeutic areas through charitable contributions, sponsorships, and grants.
Medical Education Grants
Insmed supports continued medical education (CME) for the benefit of healthcare professionals and their patients by sponsoring educational opportunities through financial grants to medical associations, institutions organizing educational conferences, medical professional meetings, and accredited CME providers.
Medical Education Grants
A request to support an independent medical education or CME program will be considered a request for an educational grant, which may be awarded to both tax-exempt and non-tax-exempt organizations.
Educational grants may be provided to medical associations, institutions organizing educational conferences, medical professional meetings, or an accredited CME provider.
Regardless of to whom an educational grant is awarded, the educational programming must be independent of Insmed in that the third-party recipient of the grant retains full control over the program content, faculty, and attendees.
Insmed does not provide “unrestricted grants” for educational program support. The purpose for grant funding must be designated and that designated purpose is the only one for which the funds may be used.
- Patient advocacy programs
- Public education programs
- Scientific and medical meetings
A request for general support or assistance with an educational conference or meeting or other community event (e.g. a charitable fundraising event) that does not qualify as a charitable contribution generally will be considered as a Sponsorship.
Sponsorships may be given to both tax exempt and non-tax-exempt organizations.
If the requester is a not-for-profit organization, a statement that the requesting institution qualifies for tax exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code is required.
Insmed is dedicated to the advancement of genuine philanthropic and charitable causes that are consistent with Insmed’s scientific and disease areas of interest.
A charitable donation applies exclusively to a requesting organization that is not-for-profit, and qualifies for tax exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code.
Investigator Initiated Research (IIR) Grants
Refers to support of medical and scientific research that is initiated by and carried out by non-Insmed scientists and researchers/clinicians.
Novel research proposals that answer important scientific and medical questions in areas aligned with Insmed disease states of interest will be considered for monetary grant support and/or a supply of product manufactured by Insmed.
A well-designed IIR study can enhance the knowledge related to disease state and/or product profile among healthcare providers. This may ultimately lead to improved evidence-based medicine and outcomes in patients afflicted with these diseases.
A request for support of an independent Investigator-Initiated Research study needs to be accompanied by the submission of a complete IIR application form.
IIR grants may be provided to academic researchers, medical research consortia, or medical researchers within the community.
The research must be independent of Insmed in that the third-party recipient of the grant retains full control over the study objectives, design, conduct, data collection, monitoring, analysis, interpretation, and publication. Insmed does not provide “unrestricted grants” for IIR support. The purpose for grant funding must be designated and that designated purpose is the only one for which the funds may be used.
