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’s philanthropic vision is to help youth grow into productive, successful adults. Grants are made around the world in locations where the company operates and in its St. Paul, Minnesota, U.S., corporate headquarters area. Grants are strategically focused in two areas:

  • STEM Education - youth education initiatives in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math;
  • Leadership Development for Youth – organizations and programs that operate in communities where H.B. Fuller employees live and work and help young people become successful, productive adults

Grants to support STEM education and youth leadership development are reviewed twice a year.
