Our approach

The Moderna Foundation is an extension of the societal impact we have made with our COVID-19 vaccine. We are passionate about addressing the ongoing needs in communities impacted by COVID-19, including the societal conditions exacerbated by the pandemic along with the inequalities this challenging period has revealed.

Together, we can work toward a long-lasting impact by: 

  • Grant-making to support organizations that align with our mission

  • Philanthropic giving to provide support during humanitarian crises 

  • Employee matching to enable our people to support causes that matter most to them 


The Moderna Foundation provides grants to support 501(c)(3) organizations, and similarly organized nonprofit organizations outside the U.S., for the benefit of our local and global communities.

Responsibility > Moderna Foundation > Amref (circle)

Amref Health Africa

We are partnering with Amref Health Africa to support efforts to improve COVID-19 vaccination coverage in Kenya, with a focus on vulnerable and hard-to-reach communities in counties most impacted by the pandemic. Programming will focus on community engagement and integration with non-communicable disease health services to build out overall health system capacity, ensure sustained access to COVID-19 vaccines, and fill gaps in routine care.

Seed Global Health

Seed Global Health

We are partnering with Seed Global Health to aid in the development of the health workforce in Malawi, Sierra Leone, Uganda and Zambia by providing clinical education and training. The COVID-19 pandemic placed excessive demands on health workers who were called on to serve on the frontline of surveillance, diagnosis and care of COVID-19 patients. These programs will focus on national quality improvement and create a model to scale and retain healthcare workers. Over the next ten years, Seed aims to train 80,000 nurses, physicians, and midwives to offer top-notch care to those who need it most.
