Grants ranging from $5,000 to $25,000 to California, New Jersey, and Texas nonprofit organizations in eligible regions for programs that promote health, well-being, and access to healthcare. Applicants are required to submit a letter of interest prior to submitting a full application.

The Allergan Foundation will consider awarding grants for:
- Programs that promote education, research, and awareness of health issues.
- Efforts to improve the quality of health care and patient access to care.
- Patient and health care-centered organizations providing direct care to an underserved population.
- Community-based projects that support health and well-being in regions where Allergan plc has a facility.

In recognition of the source of the Foundation’s endowment, strong priority is given to grant applications supporting regions where the majority of Allergan employees live and work, with a focus on Central New Jersey; Orange County, California; and Central Texas. Due to the large volume of requests received in California, priority will be given to health and human service programs in that area.

The Allergan Foundation will consider awarding grants for:
- Programs that promote education, research, and awareness of health issues.
- Efforts to improve the quality of health care and patient access to care
- Patient and health care-centered organizations providing direct care to an underserved population.
- Community-based projects that support health and well-being in regions where Allergan plc has a facility.

The Allergan Foundation focuses its giving on Health and Human Service programs. While it is the primary focus, the Foundation Board carefully reviews all requests for grants that promote healthy lives and well-being for people in the communities where Allergan Employees live and work. Given that resources are limited, the Foundation's grantmaking is as diverse as the communities it serves, and it tries to meet the unique needs of specific geographic areas.
