Overview:

Philanthropy is our commitment to communities in which we operate and broader society. We focus our resources on a limited number of key projects that can deliver valuable benefits from our contributions and those of our partners. We give priority to innovative, high-quality projects that meet the following criteria:

  • promote sustainable development
  • offer an opportunity for Roche to use its expertise and logistics capabilities
  • involve Roche actively at an early stage with local authorities and established partners
  • engage Roche employees in cultural (focus on contemporary arts), educational and social activities
  • managed by an accredited charity

Our four focus areas

Humanitarian and Social

We direct the majority of our philanthropic donations to humanitarian and social development projects.

Science and education

We are dedicated to programmes that promote scientific interest and provide educational opportunities for young people around the world.

Community and Environment

We are committed to building stronger communities and responding to natural disasters sustainably.

Arts and Culture

We support groundbreaking contemporary art, cultural projects and activities that explore the parallels between innovation in art and in science. 

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.

Eligibility:

  • Requests for support of a project that operates within one country should be directed to local management.
  • Roche affiliate offices manage local donation and sponsorship activities within a common framework and Roche’s global policy.
  • Affiliate giving is thereby restricted to supporting local organisations and programmes that are based in and operate their programmes in the same country as the affiliate.

Preferences:

  • We give priority to innovative, high-quality projects that meet the following criteria:
