Strengthening Communities

Just as our products enable nucleic acid chemistry, we recognize the ability of people to empower communities by contributing their time, effort, or resources. We strive to help society advance in meaningful ways through focused projects and collaborative networks of giving. Leveraging the passion of our employees enables us to bring shared value to others in need.

The following is a list of organizations that Glen Research has supported in 2020. If you are interested in learning more about an organization, please visit the links below.



Manna Food Center

Manna Food Center’s singular mission is to eliminate hunger in Montgomery County, Maryland. Through food distribution, education and advocacy, we are making strides on behalf of more than 63,000 county residents who experience hunger and food insecurity.


Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter (BLM) is a decentralized movement advocating for non-violent civil disobedience in protest against incidents of police brutality and all racially motivated violence against Black people.


St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.


Pancreatic Cancer Action Network

Founded in 1999, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN) is dedicated to fighting the world’s toughest cancer. In our urgent mission to save lives, we attack pancreatic cancer on all fronts: research, clinical initiatives, patient services and advocacy.



SMYAL (Supporting and Mentoring Youth Advocates and Leaders) supports and empowers lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth in the Washington, DC, metropolitan region. Through youth leadership, SMYAL creates opportunities for LGBTQ youth to build self-confidence, develop critical life skills, and engage their peers and community through service and advocacy. Committed to social change, SMYAL builds, sustains, and advocates for programs, policies, and services that LGBTQ youth need as they grow into adulthood.


Hope in South Africa (HISA)

We are a global non-profit that started in 2004 as a partnership between the Episcopal Church of St. Peter’s in Poolesville, Maryland and the Anglican Church in Richmond, South Africa. The original US travelers who travelled to Richmond were inspired to renovate the local community center resulting in a thriving facility that now houses a soup kitchen, garden, bakery, library as well as provides HIV and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) health education and leadership training for youth.


Villalobos Rescue Center

VRC works ceaselessly to give Pit Bulls (and other types of dogs) another chance in life. Each and EVERY dog is taken in and received any and all medical treatment necessary. We work patiently to re-acclimatize fearful dogs to the loving care of a human, so that they may eventually be adopted. In some cases, these dogs have never had a kind word or touch, and it is a slow process. After determining temperaments and compatibility factors, we begin that long search for the perfect home.


Casa Ruby

Casa Ruby is the only LGBTQ bilingual and multicultural organization in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area that provides social services and programs catering to the most vulnerable in the city and surrounding areas. The idea behind the formation of a transgender women of color run and led organization came almost 30 years ago when Ruby Corado arrived in Washington, D.C., and there were no services to support her needs as a young transgender Latina immigrant. Her drive and dream was to bring resources to historically underserved and under resourced communities in order to create more success stories for transgender and queer folks.


Inova Schar Cancer Institute

Inova Schar Cancer Institute is a state-of-the-art cancer center in the Washington, DC metro area designed to bring healing and hope to every patient. Inova Schar gives patients unmatched logistical, clinical and emotional support. Our team of nationally renowned doctors, specialists, surgeons, genetic counselors, nurses and caregivers are backed by the latest in drug discovery, clinical trials, research and advanced treatments.
