H.B. Fuller Company Announces Twin Cities Grants

Posted 06/27/2018 by Kimberlee Sinclair, Executive Director, H.B. Fuller Company Foundation

This May, the H.B. Fuller Company Foundation announced $75,000 in grants to 10 nonprofits in the Twin Cities. These grants support STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education and youth leadership development programs for youth in our headquarters community. The H.B. Fuller Company Foundation’s STEM and Youth Leadership grants are employee directed. A committee of employee volunteers brings our commitment to philanthropy to life by learning about each of our grantees and visiting their programs to find out how support from H.B. Fuller can make a difference. Since 1986, H.B. Fuller has been supporting communities around the world where our employees live and work through the H.B. Fuller Company Foundation. In 2017, H.B. Fuller gave $1.3 million to support STEM education and youth leadership development, as well as other causes selected by employees.

STEM Education:

Youth Leadership:

  • Big City Mountaineers, to support outdoor expeditions that promote social and emotional learning and leadership skills for under-resourced youth.
  • Casa de Esperanza, for a youth-led community advocacy and leadership program aimed at preventing domestic violence.
  • Urban Boatbuilders, to provide a boatbuilding apprenticeship program that builds leadership skills for at-risk youth.
  • Voyageur Outward Bound School, for outdoor experiential leadership education for at-risk youth.


Grantmaking is just one way H.B. Fuller supports the communities where our employees live and work. Learn more about how we give back by following #HBFullerCares on social media and by visiting
