(June 11, 2014) - This May, employees working on behalf of the H.B. Fuller Company Foundation selected 10 charities in Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minn., U.S., metropolitan area, to receive $72,000 to drive program growth in youth education for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and youth leadership development. Since 1986, H.B. Fuller has been connecting with community leaders who believe all children deserve equal opportunities to explore their potential. In 2013, The H.B. Fuller Foundation gave $1.7 million to support STEM and youth causes around the globe, as well as various programs selected and championed by employees.
H.B. Fuller employees, who were once young scientists and engineers themselves, are now given the chance to change the trajectory for our future power thinkers. A diverse committee of six H.B. Fuller employees in St. Paul personally visited each Foundation grant recipient listed below asking questions and gaining insight into the work these organizations are doing to improve people’s lives. We are proud to support these programs as they help thousands of children grow into our next generation of leaders.
Community action is happening at all levels of H.B. Fuller, and in every region of the world. Read the most recent H.B. Fuller Philanthropy Report (posted on Collaborate and hbfuller.com) to see how we’re doing.
