The Foundation awards grants to regional, national, and Europe-based nonprofit organizations that are replicable, scalable and designed to have a lasting and meaningful effect in communities where Amgen is located. Grants should reflect Amgen’s dedication to impacting lives in inspiring and innovative ways.
Philanthropic Focus - Each year, the Foundation receives hundreds of grant proposals. While it is not possible for every organization to receive funding, those that are in alignment with the Foundation’s guidelines and programmatic vision outlined below are given careful consideration.
The Amgen Foundation, Inc. will consider grant requests from nonprofit organizations that are recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as tax exempt public charities under sections 501(c)(3) and 509(a)(1), (2), (3) of the Internal Revenue Code, located in the United States and Puerto Rico. In addition, the Amgen Foundation will consider requests for funding from governmental organizations located in the United States where the purpose of the grant is to support a charitable, educational, scientific or literary purpose. Thus, eligible grantees may include public elementary and secondary schools, as well as public colleges and universities, public libraries and public hospitals.
Successful requests will fall within both the current eligibility guidelines and funding priority areas established by the Amgen Foundation. Organizations may only submit one request a year for funding.
