Taiho Smile Support is an initiative to support organizations and individuals seeking to solve various social issues in the field of oncology that cannot be solved by drugs alone. Taiho Pharmaceutical called for organizations and individuals who plan to use crowdfunding to raise funds to address these social issues. Selected organizations and individuals will conduct a crowdfunding campaign and, if they reach their funding target,1 they will receive from Taiho Pharmaceutical, in the form of a donation, matching funds equal to the target they have raised.

1 The crowdfunding target (not including the crowdfunding fee) is to be 50% of all funds needed to carry out the project. If the target is met, Taiho Pharmaceutical will provide the remaining 50%. Thus, the success of the crowdfunding campaign will determine whether or not Taiho Pharmaceutical will provide support.

●Matching gift support to be provided: Early June 2022
●Project period: June 2022 to May 2023
