Connecting what matters in our communities

Employees are the backbone of our company, and one of the best ways to honor our employees is to listen to what they care about and involve them in our philanthropic activities and decision-making.

Kimberlee Sinclair, Executive Director H.B. Fuller Company Foundation

We have a long history of valuing our employees’ experiences and connections to the communities where they live and work. Employee-directed Community Affairs Councils (CAC) were created in 1973 to facilitate the company’s commitment to giving back. CACs implement H.B. Fuller’s philanthropic giving and employee volunteerism programs in communities around the world.

In 2019, there were 37 CACs, which represented more than 550 volunteers, logged thousands of hours, and donated $110,000 to their local communities. By listening to our employees and our communities, we are able to make a meaningful impact far and wide; by collaborating with partner organizations, we are able to make positive change.

Employee-led initiatives, coupled with the H.B. Fuller Foundation, consistently provide resources to support our communities.
