Doing Good

At Genentech, we are compelled to give back and make meaningful contributions to society. We believe that philanthropy fuels change, mentoring makes a difference and many sets of hands are better than one. Through ongoing, incremental acts of kindness, we can achieve great outcomes for our communities and our patients.
