Our giving strategy focuses on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education and leadership development programs for youth that help young people become productive, healthy adults. Local Community Affairs Councils engage with their communities by managing local community affairs programs and administering corporate programs and grants in their area.

H.B. Fuller’ philanthropic vision is to help young people grow into productive, successful adults. H.B. Fuller Company Foundation grants are strategically focused in two areas:

  • STEM education – youth education initiatives in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)
  • Leadership development for youth – organizations and programs that help young people become successful, productive adults

Our long-standing commitment to be a responsible corporate citizen is a great source of pride for H.B. Fuller. We recognize the world’s finite resources require us to minimize our impact on the environment while creating value for our customers.
