3M strives to maximize our social impact within our communities and support a culture of service among our people. To do this, 3Mgives partners with leading organizations that are aligned to our global footprint and have proven track records for making a difference in our three areas of focus:

Education – 3M supports initiatives that advance equitable outcomes in STEM and business for under-represented and under-resourced populations. Our goal is to help build a diverse pipeline of global talent by increasing student interest and achievement in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).

Community – 3M thrives to build inclusiveness, diversity and vibrancy in 3M communities. This is accomplished by supporting programs that assure access to basic needs, prepare youth for life-long success, increase access to quality and diverse arts opportunities, and contribute to global humanitarian relief efforts.

Environment – 3M invests in environmental initiatives that promote sustainability and environmental stewardship in the communities where we operate. We are committed to supporting organizations focused on conservation and improving air and water quality. 3M also supports quality environmental learning activities for students.



Organizations should serve a 3M Community and be aligned with 3M’s focuse areas and strategies.
