Genentech is committed to supporting programs open to a broad audience that benefit patients, the scientific or medical community, and/or public health.
The Genentech Funding Request System is temporarily closed to new healthcare-related charitable submissions until Tuesday, January 2. Independent Medical Education, Scientific Project Support, Fellowship and Philanthropic request submissions will remain open during this time.
Pending requests with event/program dates beginning in mid-January or beyond will not receive final decisions until the new year.
If you plan to submit a charitable contribution request for an event or program occurring on or after March 3, the system will begin accepting new submissions on Tuesday, January 2.
These support requests are healthcare-related and are consistent with a therapeutic or technological area in which Genentech or Roche is active.
Subject to certain conditions, Genentech may fund requests for general organizational support (i.e., for an unspecified purpose). Organizations that are not eligible for general organizational support include, but are not limited to: non-profit organizations and professional societies/associations that purchase Genentech/Roche products; and non-profit organizations that develop Medicare recognized compendia or nationally recognized treatment guidelines.
Grant requests must be submitted at least 60 days prior to the project/program start date. The following uploads are required to submit your application:
Before you start the submission process, please be sure to have the following information available:
You will have to provide the name and email address of a legally authorized approver of the request before you can complete submission.
An event/program that will occur on multiple dates and/or in multiple locations can be submitted in one request. For example, a nationwide charity walk series can be submitted in one request because each charity walk is a component of one event/program.
