Healthcare-Related Charitable Support

Genentech is committed to supporting programs open to a broad audience that benefit patients, the scientific or medical community, and/or public health.


Due to our 2018 year-end close process, the Genentech Funding Request System will stop accepting healthcare-related charitable support requests at 5:00PM PT, Wednesday, November 21 and will reopen for requests on Wednesday, January 2.

This temporary closure only affects healthcare-related charitable support. Independent Medical Education, Scientific Project Support, Fellowship and Philanthropic requests will continue to be accepted during this time.

It is important to note the Genentech Funding Request System cannot accept requests less than 60 days prior to the event/program start date. Therefore, if you plan to submit a charitable contribution request for an event or program occurring before March 3, 2019, please submit your request no later than November 21, to ensure consideration.

Pending requests with event/program dates beginning in mid-January 2019 or beyond will receive final decisions in the new year.

These support requests are healthcare-related and are consistent with a therapeutic or technological area in which Genentech or Roche is active.

Decision Making

Genentech has a rolling review policy when evaluating funding requests for healthcare-related charitable support. This allows qualified requestors the opportunity to apply anytime during year.

Requests must be submitted at least 60 days prior to the project/program start date. Decisions are made on a case-by-case basis; you will usually hear back from Genentech prior to the project/program start date. Please refrain from submitting applications for which the project/program start date is more than 6 months out. Early submissions will not ensure an early decision.

Letter of Agreement (LOA)

All grants must abide by the terms in the Genentech Letter of Agreement (LOA), which is issued to an authorized signer of your organization once the application is approved. You must agree to the terms of the LOA before any funding is issued.

If you have any questions on the agreement terms, please email us at [email protected] or call (877) 313-5778.

Note: The funding application site does not support IE8 or earlier
