Global Reach. Local Impact.
H.B. Fuller’s global philanthropy strategy is centered around our commitment to improving the quality of life in the communities where we do business. Our charitable giving focuses on grantmaking, corporate and employee giving, and volunteerism. Our scope reaches more than 20 countries through support from the H.B. Fuller Company Foundation and global employee-led Community Affairs Councils. As a global leader in industrial adhesives, we are focused on inspiring tomorrow’s innovators today by supporting science, technology, engineering and math education and leadership development programs for youth.

Every day, we are creating innovative solutions for our customers, but the work we do outside company walls is a vital and meaningful extension of our belief in the power of collaboration.
