Philanthropic Charitable Support

Philanthropic Charitable Support is focused on humanitarian & social programs, science & education or community & environment. These requests are not healthcare-related.

Decision Making

Genentech has a rolling review policy when evaluating funding requests for philanthropic 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 contact us at (877) 313-5778.

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