The Genentech Foundation is a U.S.-based, private charitable foundation. It was established in 2002 by Genentech, a leading biotechnology company that discovers, develops, manufactures and commercializes biotherapeutics for significant unmet medical needs.

Genentech is committed to being a strong corporate citizen, and the Genentech Foundation is one of the most important ways in which we give back to our communities. Launched in 2002, the Foundation is charged with identifying and supporting select organizations whose missions and outreach align with our funding priorities.
