Update 3/28/18: Funding for this match offer has been fully applied to eligible projects and is donations will no longer be matched. We are thrilled to see all of the amazing projects created to promote STEM in the classroom! We will update this page if additional funding becomes available.
Futurelab, Genentech’s hyper-local STEM education initiative in South San Francisco, is focused on inspiring students to reach their potential as the next generation of innovators and to engage them in a lifelong exploration of science. Genentech is proud to support the community where we’ve been based for over 40 years through through funding, employee time and talent, and material donations.
Starting August 1, Genentech is providing dollar-for-dollar donation matching on qualifying South San Francisco Unified School District projects.
Here’s how to qualify:
- Make sure your school is within the South San Francisco Unified School District.
- Keep your total project goal under $1000 including all taxes & fees (that’s roughly $750 in materials). If posting multiple projects, the total combined project cost (including taxes & fees) should be $1,000 or less.
- Projects featuring hands-on science are encouraged, but not required
If your project meets the criteria above, you’ll see the Genentech logo on your project as soon as it’s live, and new donations will be matched while funding lasts.
