Since 1976, the General Motors Foundation has donated nearly $1 billion to U.S. charities, educational organizations and disaster relief efforts worldwide. In 2016, the company began transitioning from a U.S.-focused, foundation-based giving model to a global social impact strategy to promote economic growth around the world. This strategy will advance STEM education, improve vehicle and road safety and build sustainable communities, with a special focus where GM has business units and employee presence around the world.

Fuel social investments to promote economic growth around the world through STEM education, vehicle and road safety and sustainable communities.

Smart, safe and sustainable communities around the world.
