Funding and support

Beyond developing new therapies for those in need, GBT is committed to collaborating with patients, advocacy groups, healthcare professionals (HCPs) and researchers. We do this through grants, charitable contributions, sponsorships and research opportunities.

The GBT Foundation

The GBT Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, primarily funded by Global Blood Therapeutics, Inc.

The Mission

The GBT Foundation is a community-focused entity that seeks to improve the health and well-being of underserved patient communities around the world. Our four areas of focus are:

  • Increasing education and awareness for communities impacted by sickle cell disease (SCD)
  • Empowering people with SCD
  • Improving access to healthcare in SCD
  • Enhancing healthcare equity in SCD

The GBT Foundation is committed to giving back to the communities we serve through funding and collaboration.

Community Engagement & Partnership

Community is our strength and inspiration. Since the beginning, we have collaborated closely with the sickle cell community to make a difference in patient care for those with SCD and other grievous blood-based disorders. We continue to work closely with patient advocacy groups, community-based organizations, SCD treatment centers and key government stakeholders to support innovative programs, education and awareness activities.

Medical Affairs

GBT collaborates with researchers, physicians, public health experts and others who share our passion for creating medicines for SCD. We sponsor research conducted by external scientists with the goal of advancing scientific knowledge and patient care within our clinical areas of interest. We also support continuing medical education and educational initiatives aimed at healthcare professionals.
