Your surplus could save millions of lives.

SIRUM proudly works with manufacturers and wholesalers on one-time or recurring donations. Maybe you have safety stock or lightly damaged packaging that can’t be sold traditionally. As long as it’s sealed and unexpired, your medication could benefit millions of patients in need.

Why Donate?

It’s good corporate citizenship.

Expand your corporate social responsibility efforts and maximize the good you do for your community.

Protect the environment.

Medication destruction pollutes waterways with pharmaceutical runoff and releases toxic dioxins into the air. SIRUM’s program has been commended by the EPA and USAID.

Get tax benefits.

Medicine donations may be eligible for an enhanced tax deduction, which could be a significant value to your business.

Have complete confidence.

We have helped with policies in over a dozen states that enable donations and provide liability protection, so you can donate with complete confidence.

The impact is real

  • Without SIRUM and its medicine donors, our organization wouldn't exist. Medication from SIRUM is available and ready to go; it's the first supply I look at. The more donations SIRUM makes available, the more power I have to get medicine to my patients. SIRUM saves patients' lives.
    Dr. Sarah Adkins, Executive Director and Founder of Rising Suns Nonprofit Pharmacy, Ohio


Getting Started

Returning and donating are not exclusive, just donate the medicine you are not getting credit for. When looking at their credit statement, many organizations find that most of their medication is not creditable and can save more money with potential tax deductions than they currently get in credit.

Medication not labeled for use in the U.S. is not eligible for donation.

How It Works

Expired medication is not eligible for donation. We ask individuals to ensure their medication is 5+ months away from expiration. For organizations donating, most donations need to be 6+ months from expiration.

You can donate inhalers, as long as they are unopened or have an inner seal. Foil-wrapped inhalers are acceptable, even if the outer box is opened.

Yes, you can donate self-injectable medications such as epi-pens or other pre-filled syringes if they are unexpired, sealed/unopened, non-controlled, and non-refrigerated.

You can donate as often as you’d like, and according to your facility’s needs! Some groups make a shipment every week and others every 1-2 months.


Yes. Donating medicine is legal. SIRUM works under each state’s Good Samaritan Laws for Drug Donation. We are the nation’s leading expert on drug donation laws and regulations.
