The Gilead Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, endowed by Gilead Sciences, Inc.

Vision & Mission

Vision: A neighbor in the community; a citizen in society.

Mission: We strive for health prosperity for all. We create spheres of impact – in our company, in the community, in society – by encouraging a culture of giving, engaging with local communities and exploring innovative approaches to complex social issues.

Our Support

The COVID-19 pandemic amplified how connected we are as a global society – and the widespread impact of health and justice disparities. Through the Gilead Foundation’s three pillars – Giving Together Program, Building Community Donations and the Creating Possible Fund – we create a more equitable and prosperous world for all.

Pillars of Giving
