We are a nonprofit corporate foundation that awards grants to support charitable organizations for scientific, literary and educational purposes. This includes a focus on supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all, to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
Since our inception in 2005, we have contributed more than $20 Million to charities to help sustain and enrich the communities where we live and work.
We operate under a well-organized governance structure and follow a specific process for the review of grant application requests to help us deliver programs that will have a lasting impact.

To make the most effective contribution to society, we have implemented a structure and process to enhance clarity of purpose, efficiency and effectiveness. We are governed by a board of directors who are supported in day-to-day operations by corporate officers, an advisory council and legal representation.
The Astellas USA Foundation review team meets at least quarterly to consider and award grants. This year, we are reviewing grants that support the health and well-being of society, STEM education and disaster response.
