Introducing 3Mgives

Introducing 3Mgives – the new name that encompasses all 3M/3M Foundation giving, product donations and volunteerism around the globe.

As the 3M Foundation celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, we worked with 3Mers around the world to review, reflect and refresh our giving strategies to ensure that 3M’s philanthropy and community engagement remain impactful, relevant, contemporary and global.  We are launching a new giving strategy that will enhance the vibrancy of our communities around the world.

3Mgives has a broader geographic reach while supporting local communities; increases opportunities for branding; and creates shared value for 3M businesses and our community partners. The areas of focus are:  Education, Community, which includes human services and the arts, and the Environment.  Volunteerism continues to be the cornerstone of 3Mgives.

Kim Price, Vice President, 3Mgives
