Commitment to Our Community

At Agios, we are committed to our community – the community where we live and the community of people in need of new and better treatment options for cancer and rare genetic diseases.

Boston / Cambridge Community

With our headquarters in the Boston / Cambridge area, we are committed to providing assistance to organizations and projects that provide clear local benefits and are aligned with our values and interests. We encourage our employees to get involved in local service projects because of the value this provides to our community and to each individual. Local initiatives that Agios employees support include:

Advocacy Community

In everything we do, we are focused on making a difference in the lives of patients and their families. This goal drives us each day at Agios as we work towards creating transformative medicines, and we devote our energy, time and resources to organizations that share this passion outside of the office, including:

Charitable Giving

Agios is passionately committed to improving the lives of patients and families affected by cancer and rare genetic diseases. Through charitable donations to healthcare-related non-profit organizations, we support:

  • Disease awareness and education
  • Patient and family support services and programs
  • Community-building programs and events

We also provide non-healthcare-related philanthropic support in the Greater Boston area to strengthen the community in which we live. Please submit your grant request by clicking here.

What an inspiration it was to see all the twinkling balloons bobbing up and down in support of a much-needed cure. For me, the balloons represented not only the hope of a cure but the coming together of family, friends, neighbors and strangers to extend a helping hand to those who need it. I believe the power of that energy is as valuable to finding a cure as the money raised. We have all felt what that energy is like. I will always gratefully give my energy away to someone who needs it.
