Does the CDC receive funding from pharmaceutical companies, or any other non-government agency or company? If so, how much money and from whom?

- This question does not appear to be about governments, policies and political processes within the scope defined in the help center.
The CDC itself is federal agency, so as such it receives all of its funding from the Federal Budget.
Unless you want to get into (more or less philosophical) discussions where the Federal Budget money comes from, that's all there is to say on this matter. And if you do want to ask about the latter, please ask separately.
Besides the CDC, there exists a CDC Foundation, which is indeed a non-profit organization that does take private donations
The CDC Foundation operates independently from CDC as a private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization incorporated in the State of Georgia. The creation of the Foundation was authorized by section 399F of the Public Health Service Act to support the mission of CDC in partnership with the private sector, including organizations, foundations, businesses, educational groups, and individuals.
If you want details about the funding of this CDC Foundation, please be more specific with your question.
As Fizz's answer points out the CDC is a federal agency and as such is funded by Congressional Appropriations - however this is not the only source of funding.
Looking at the most recent data at time of writing (FY 2018) the CDC received direct gifts of $11,477,767 - mostly from Universities and other charitable foundations. The biggest donor was GAVI Alliance at just over $4 million but you can read the full list here and $15,083,198 in gifts from the CDC Foundation.
So that's a total of about $26,560,965 coming from non-governmental sources, which at first glance might sound like a lot of money. When compared with the $8,245,808,000 received from the aforementioned congressional appropriations its, erm, not. It is in fact just 0.32% of the total funding for FY 2018.
