Partnering to protect healthcare workers in the United States and around the world

Direct Relief is 3M and 3M Foundation’s cornerstone partner for global humanitarian aid – managing the equitable distribution of critical 3M personal protective equipment and other products of need during natural disasters and other humanitarian crises.  


3M has invested millions of dollars’ worth of personal protective equipment and other supplies to ensure rapid deployment to underserved parts of the world. During the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, 3M proudly served as the anchor partner for a COVID-19 Response Fund for Community Health with a $10 million grant to enable federally qualified health centers to build capacity and aid their heroic health workers with cash support covering unanticipated costs.
