Community Grants Program

Paladin Pharma Community Grants provide funding in the form of unrestricted grants for Canadian patient advocacy groups or relevant organizations. This represents one aspect of Paladin’s commitment to improving patient health by providing support to initiatives for patients that meet our standards of quality and compliance.

Support shall not be granted with an intent to promote Paladin products or otherwise to reward past or influence current or future prescribing, purchasing volume, or formulary treatment of a Paladin product. Grants may never be offered for any commercial purpose.

Robust standards and policies assure that Paladin Community Grants may only be provided in support of an initiative which is organized and conducted completely independent of influence from Paladin and its representatives and/or agents. All Paladin-supported activities must:

  • be non-promotional in tone/nature
  • provide information that is fair and balanced
  • be accurate and not misleading
  • apply all applicable disclosures regarding Paladin funding during the activity

Current Main Therapeutic Areas of Interest

Submission Process

All grant requests must be submitted in writing via email to at least 90 calendar days prior to the start date of any associated activity. No grant will be reviewed or approved after the start date of any such activity.

Review Process

Submissions are reviewed by the Paladin Grant Review Committee on a regular basis and evaluated for their merit, alignment with Paladin's areas of therapeutic interest, contribution to the improvement of patient healthcare outcomes, audience scope and compliance with legal, ethical and professional obligations, and availability of resources. Submission of a grant proposal does not guarantee approval.

Paladin will acknowledge receipt of all submissions. Upon receipt of submission, a formal notification on the status of an application will be sent once a decision is reached. Time for review will depend on the completeness of the submission.
