Access to health and well-being is essential to a sustainable society. We seek to provide access to health and well-being for all people of all ages, and to enrich the quality of life for people in the communities we serve. We provide funding to organizations that have a long-standing history of promoting mental health, supporting people with disabilities and helping people who are underserved access the health care that they need.
High-quality Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education helps today’s students develop collaboration, critical-thinking and problem-solving skills. We strive to inspire students to develop an interest and proficiency in STEM subjects by supporting organizations that reach directly into the classroom, and by funding STEM-related online and after-school enrichment programs . The programs that we fund expose students to STEM-related careers, provide them with first-hand learning experiences, and inspire the next generation of scientists.
Crisis prevention and recovery are at the forefront of building sustainable communities. Sometimes help is needed when it’s least expected, such as when disaster strikes. During those times, the needs are immediate. We feel it is essential to encourage communities to prepare for disaster, respond immediately when needed and ease the burden of those most affected.
We provide funds to programs that prepare and strengthen communities, including global collaboration with our Astellas’ regional Foundations to provide direct relief when a large scale disaster strikes.
