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 2020 year-end close process, the Genentech Funding Request System will stop accepting Fellowship, Scientific Project, Healthcare-Related and Philanthropic Charitable Support requests at 12:00AM PT, Thursday, November 26 and will reopen for requests on Monday, January 4, 2021.
This temporary closure affects Healthcare-Related Charitable support, Scientific Project Support, Fellowship and Philanthropic Support requests. Independent Medical Education 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 4, 2021, please submit your request no later than November 25, to ensure consideration.
Pending requests with event/program dates beginning in January 2021 or beyond may receive final decisions in the new year.
Genentech is committed to supporting our existing grantees during the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We understand that grantees will have their own challenges in adapting to rapidly changing events, and we will work to accommodate needs for the programs funded by Genentech.
If you are an existing grantee, please contact your Genentech representative with questions or to let us know if your program or event will be cancelled or postponed. If you are unsure of who to contact, please email [email protected] and we will direct you to the appropriate person.
To learn more about Genentech’s efforts during the pandemic, please visit our COVID-19 response page.
