Supporting Racial Equity in Our Community

Posted 04 Aug 2021 by Kimberlee Sinclair, Director, Global Communications

H.B. Fuller is committed to advancing racial equity and supporting non-profit organizations that align with our values. The H.B. Fuller Company Foundation recently awarded a total of $125,000 to 16 organizations working to advance racial equity in the areas of safety, education, and employment in our headquarters community of the Twin Cities, Minnesota.

We are proud to support the work of these organizations that are providing services to people previously excluded from education or employment opportunities, strengthening police and community relationships, addressing inequities in housing, teaching skills for livable wage jobs, supporting vulnerable youth in foster care, providing resources for those in the justice system, and teaching life skills that will benefit everyone in our community.
