Our approach to philanthropy

A long tradition of giving back

Giving back to the communities within which we live and work is a long-standing tradition at Roche Canada and one that mirrors our sustainability-driven approach to business. Through both financial support and employee volunteerism, our philanthropy program aims at making a meaningful impact in our communities.

Our philanthropic efforts have a broad alignment to our organization as a healthcare company. We will consider supporting charitable organizations that meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • Humanitarian and social projects

  • Culture and arts projects

  • Community and environment projects

  • Science and education projects

Due to the volume of requests that are made to us, there are certain activities and organizations that are not eligible for funding support:

  • Organizations that do not have a Canada Revenue Agency charitable number

  • Political campaigns or political candidates

  • Capital campaigns for facilities and infrastructure ('bricks and mortar')

  • Political and/or religious organizations

  • Organizations that are affiliated with any discriminatory practices or policies based on race, creed, gender, age, sexual preference or national origin

  • Sponsorship of fundraising events (e.g. galas, golf tournaments)

To be considered for philanthropic support, charitable organizations must submit a funding request through ourAll requests for philanthropic support are managed through an external process, which allows Roche Canada to consider requests that explicitly align with our philanthropy program.
