Walgreens Boots Alliance makes direct cash and non-cash donations to local, international and national charities mainly focused on health, social welfare and education issues. In fiscal 2017 the Company made $33.9 million in direct contributions, which do not include donations raised in employee, customer and supplier fundraisers.

Overall, our corporate giving fell by 10.1 percent in fiscal 2017 compared with fiscal 2016 primarily due to the strategic alignment of contributions with our CSR priorities and goals. We believe we can have a greater impact building stronger relationships with fewer strategic CSR partners.
