3Mgives enhances community vibrancy by improving standards of living, preparing youth for life-long success, increasing access to quality and diverse arts opportunities and contributing to global humanitarian relief efforts. For example, 3M brings science to life for young people by providing ongoing support for the Science Museum of Minnesota and the William L. McKnight-3M Omnitheater. Another example of 3M’s dedication to community is the annual 3M Half Marathon in Austin, Texas, set a record with 6,500 runners. The nonprofit, Girlstart, received $50,000 from 3Mgives in conjunction with the race. Girlstart’s programs work to increase girls’ interest and engagement in STEM fields.

3M continuously strives to improve the quality of life in underserved families, increase access to youth development programs for underrepresented children, and provide access to vibrant and diverse art opportunities. 3Mgives forms lasting partnerships with communities worldwide and provides resources to help them succeed and grow—ensuring a more interconnected and thriving world.
