A vicious hurricane that battered New Orleans and other natural disasters spurred Eli Lilly and Co. to give a record $511 million in philanthropic donations last year.

The Indianapolis drug maker, which has a policy of trying to be among the top 10 largest U.S. corporate givers of philanthropic aid every year, said it contributed $58 million in cash and $453 million in drug products last year, as it tried to respond to several global tragedies and growing demand from low-income Americans for free or discounted drugs."
