Astellas USA Foundation was formed in 2005 at the time of the historical merger of Japan’s third and fifth largest pharmaceutical companies – Yamanouchi and Fujisawa into Astellas Pharma Inc. The legacy of the Yamanouchi Foundation, the Astellas USA Foundation has donated more than $20 million to charity since its inception. The Foundation promotes well-being and education, which includes a focus on supporting the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals that are aimed at achieving healthy lives for all and also funds programs that inspire the next generation of scientists through STEM education.
