What We Fund
Gilead welcomes funding requests for innovative, high-impact projects that relate to at least one of the following therapeutic areas:

We consider a number of factors when reviewing grant requests, but it is most important for applications to demonstrate a strong commitment to — and capacity for — delivering the specific services your funded grant would support.
Grant applications are accepted throughout the year.

- Web-based resources

Medical & Scientific Support
Gilead supports continuing medical education programs that aim to improve the medical knowledge and skills of healthcare professionals. Projects that have been funded in the past to support medicine and science include lectures and symposia.
Events related to support for medicine and science should provide opportunities for broad participation by healthcare professionals. Organizations that are eligible for grants may not limit participants or speakers to those affiliated with the organization. Other support will be provided in compliance with applicable rules such as the Fair Competition Code stipulated by the Fair Trade Council.
The types of organizations Gilead has funded for medical and scientific support include:
- Medical educational institutions
- Academic societies
- Professional organizations such as medical professionals
- Community medical and health centers
- Hospitals and university hospitals
Many people are unfairly treated because of their age, physical disability, ethnicity/race, gender, gender identity or socioeconomic status when it comes to receiving necessary medical care.
In order to ensure that all people, regardless of their background, have an equal opportunity to receive the best possible medical care, Gilead makes grants to organizations that conduct meaningful social action programs and healthcare-related charitable events in areas where medical needs are still unmet. Gilead will support such organizations in compliance with applicable rules, including the Fair Trade Council's Fair Competition Code.
Types of charitable events that have been the subject of grants in the past are as follows:
- Regional programs
- Charity walks and marathons
- Community service activities
- Community projects
