Donations and GRants REQUEST FORM

Chiesi

THIS FORM IS TO REQUEST A DONATION OR GRANT.
PLEASE COMPLETE ALL SECTIONS AND SUBMIT WITH A LETTER OF REQUEST ON INSTITUTION LETTERHEADED PAPER.

Chiesi Limited is proud to support activities which enhance patient care.  The merit of your request will be given due and full consideration against our internal Donations and Grants Policy. 

In assessing your request, specific consideration will be given to the following criteria:

  • There must be a clear, direct benefit to patients, i.e. future management and treatment of patients is enhanced beyond routine expectations, or a benefit to the NHS is clear whilst maintaining patient care.
  • The requested grant and/or donation must not be linked to the use of any Chiesi product, and the application must be independently completed without the input or influence of a Chiesi employee.
  • Sponsorship to a Healthcare Professional to support their attendance at a Scientific congress may be considered where clear rationale is provided for how patients will benefit from their attendance, however only registration will be supported.

Items/activities which are not eligible to be funded by a donation or grant include:

  • Routine capital equipment or building funds, such as capital or operating expenses
  • An activity that the NHS would routinely consider funding, i.e. health and safety training or external training to enable or initiate delivery of standard services expected from a surgery, health centre or hospital.
  • Any activity or professional development that would be expected to be carried to maintain registration to a professional body and/or for appraisal and revalidation
  • An activity which results in an individual gaining personal benefit, i.e., funding a diploma or degree course, or similar.
  • Social events (such as charity balls, student graduation celebrations)
  • Externally sponsored scientific research

In order to give your application the best chance of success, applicants should consider the following guidance:

  • Applications must be submitted at least eight weeks before the proposed activity/event is due to take place.
  • Consideration will only be given to a funding request where all fields have been completed fully and accurately, with a full breakdown of funding.
  • Consideration will only be given to the provision of funding on the basis of the information stated in this Form. You may not amend the information once submitted and if there are any changes to the basis of an application this must form the subject of a fresh application.
  • A submitted request does not constitute a guarantee that the application will be approved, and is done so at your own risk. Any detriment (financial, time or other) incurred during the application process is at the risk of the requester and will not be reimbursed by Chiesi Limited if the application is declined.
  • An application is only confirmed as approved once a formal confirmation letter is received by the requester. 
  • Chiesi Limited will disclose any payments made in cash or benefit in kind to a Healthcare Organisation and Patient Organisation/Charity on a per activity basis.
  • Chiesi Limited will disclose any payments made for sponsorship to Healthcare Professionals to attend Scientific Congresses, either against the individual or as an aggregate (dependent on consent provided).
  • The decision made by Chiesi Limited is final, and will not be subject to further review. 
  • All funding approval is at the discretion of Chiesi UK Limited and is not guaranteed even if all criteria is met.
