3M strives to maximize our social impact within our communities and support a culture of service among our people. To do this, 3M Foundation 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:
In addition to aligning with 3M’s focus areas and strategies, organizations must meet the following criteria and must serve a 3M Community. See our 3M community locations in the U.S. (PDF, 114KB).
3M Foundation is committed to learning about the work of U.S.-based nonprofits that meet our funding criteria. We are working to overhaul a Community Interest Form to provide a quick and easy way for nonprofits to tell our team about work aligned to 3M Foundation guidelines and strategic priorities. We anticipate the revised form will be re-posted during the first quarter of 2020 and will be hosted for 24/7 access thereafter. Please note that submitting a Community Interest Form is for introductory purposes only and does not constitute an application for funds or a guarantee of support. Thank you for your interest in 3M Foundation and for the work you lead to improve well-being and vibrancy in your community!
