Genentech is committed to building more vibrant and sustainable communities. We support critical issues relevant to Genentech’s site communities such as housing and food security, and also give locally and nationally to support a more diverse and inclusive pipeline of talent in STEM and medicine. Note that these grants are not health or patient focused.
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.
