Sanofi Foundation for North America

About 20 years ago, Sanofi established a Patient Assistance Foundation which supported the Sanofi Patient Assistance Program. In November 2011, the Foundation was re-named the Sanofi Foundation for North America. At the Foundation, we strive to reduce healthcare inequalities in the U.S. through strategic charitable donations and by establishing partnerships with non-government organizations that have broad expertise in our long-term priorities.

The Sanofi Foundation for North America makes it possible to provide prescription drugs at no cost to patients who do not have insurance coverage and who meet program eligibility requirements.  This is managed through the patient assistance component of the Sanofi Patient Connection™.

The Foundation has a small cash component used for charitable community donations.  We partner with and support organizations that have expertise in the following categories:

  • Health:  Programs that aim to improve the public's health, increase access to healthcare, focus on prevention, and/or general disease awareness.
  • Human Service:  Programs that strengthen families and/or improve opportunities for self-sufficiency within communities.  Support for basic human service needs would also fall within this category.
  • Education:  Programs that increase access to, or the outcome of, the education of our youth.  Examples include support for K-12 and higher educational institutions, literacy organizations, scholarship programs, programs to increase interest in an aptitude for Science, Technology, Education and Math (STEM), and programs that improve teacher skills.
  • Environment:  Programs that contribute to environmental sustainability.  Specific areas of interest include:  Environmental protection of water and/or energy conservation; Air quality or Climate Change; Bio-Diversity; Recycling Programs; or Educational Awareness about these topics.
  • Civic & Community:  Contribute toward community development and strengthening the community, its residents, or the business environment in some significant and measurable way.
