GM Donates $1.7 Million Across U.S. Through Community Grants Program

In 2016, General Motors awarded $1.7 million to nonprofit organizations located in and serving General Motors communities across the U.S. through the company’s Community Grants Program.

With a special focus in the areas of STEM education, vehicle and road safety, neighborhood revitalization and workforce development, the program allows facilities to designate grant funding to organizations vital to addressing the needs of the employees and customers in their region.

“GM’s commitment to our local communities runs deep,” said Lori Wingerter, senior manager, Global Corporate Giving at GM. “While building cars that people love is why we’re there, the Community Grants Program empowers our neighbors and fosters sustainable change in the communities we serve.”

Funded by the GM Foundation, the program designated the funds to nearly 300 organizations in 47 communities where GM employees live and work in 2016.
