Since its inception in 1976, the General Motors Foundation has dedicated itself to giving back to communities across the country. Over the past decade, the GM Foundation has donated more than $265 million in grants to support nonprofit organizations within the areas of Education, Health and Human Services, Environment/Safety and Community Development.

Today, the GM Foundation focuses on investments in education that support the next generation of leaders and innovators, particularly in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Beyond supporting the education of our nation’s youth from birth to college through initiatives like the Buick Achievers Scholarship Program, the GM Foundation gives students hands-on experiences that further their environmental studies and cultural experiences within their communities. In addition, the GM Foundation has a 17-year partnership with Safe Kids Worldwide to provide programs that lead to safe habits both inside and outside of cars.

To continue its commitment to local communities, through its annual Plant City Grant Program, the GM Foundation gives approximately $2 million in grants to nonprofits where GM has operations as part of its Plant City Grants initiative.
