Kimberlee Sinclair, Director, Global Communications Executive Director, H.B. Fuller Company Foundation for H.B. Fuller.At H.B. Fuller, our communities have long been valued as one of our most important stakeholder groups. We recognize that thriving communities not only benefit our neighbors, they also position our company to succeed. H.B. Fuller is dedicated to strengthening the communities where we do business. To achieve this goal, we focus on key strategies of investing in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education and youth leadership; supporting employee volunteerism; and connecting employees with causes they value. 

During 2018, we continued to build upon on our major corporate social responsibility initiatives, while also expanding our community involvement programming to include recently acquired companies, including Adecol and Royal Adhesives & Sealants. This year, more H.B. Fuller employees volunteered than ever before, and our signature Make a Difference volunteer campaign reached a total of over 50,000 hours of service contributed over the past decade. The H.B. Fuller Company Foundation offered grants in five new communities, expanding our philanthropic footprint.

Though we are focused on creating positive change in the specific geographies where our employees live and work, we also take a global view of H.B. Fuller’s corporate citizenship responsibilities. Today’s challenges are too complex for any one organization to address alone – collaboration is essential. To this end, H.B. Fuller reports on our progress toward advancing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We also are dedicated to building strong partnerships with nonprofit organizations, academic institutions, and other corporations who share our vision of success for our communities.

As a company, we are committed to being a responsible corporate citizen and building strong communities. The work we do today alongside our partners will help build a sustainable, thriving future for our business, our employees, and our neighbors.
