The Genentech Foundation

We envision a world where health and prosperity are accessible to all.

We believe one way to realize this vision is to challenge and dismantle systemic barriers to create pathways into sustainable careers in science and medicine.

Who We Fund:

San Francisco State University

Building off a decade-long partnership, the Genentech Foundation is now supporting approximately 100 underrepresented and low-income students per year from freshmen through Masters-level. By providing financial and academic support as well as additional resources such as mentoring and rich research experiences, this program will enable students to complete their degrees faster, and be better positioned for success in PhD programs and their careers.

American Chemical Society

The Genentech Foundation supports the American Chemical Society’s Bridge Project, a comprehensive program designed to increase the number of underrepresented students receiving doctoral degrees in the chemical sciences. The Bridge Project connects underrepresented students pursuing advanced degrees in chemical sciences to ACS Bridge Sites, university departments that have demonstrated a commitment to diversity and inclusion. Students receive financial and academic support as well as access to career building programs.
