Overview:

The Saint-Gobain Corporation Foundation Direct Grants program supports non-profit organizations where our employees live and work

The Saint-Gobain Corporation Foundation Direct Grants program supports non-profit organizations in three major focus areas:

  • Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) Education, especially blue collar and non-traditional STEM programs.
  • Habitat: The interaction between people, buildings and the environment or sustainable building (energy conservation and environmental concern)
  • Local Communities: Community development, especially in the area of housing

The Saint-Gobain Corporation Foundation is committed to putting the power of its people and its products into the communities in which its employees live and work.

The Foundation believes Saint-Gobain can do well by doing good – and supporting non-profits that share a commitment to community development, energy conservation and environmental stewardship is central to that belief.
