"In 1953, Archibald Granville Bush, chairman of the executive committee of the 3M Company, and his wife, Edyth Bassler Bush, brought their many giving efforts into focus by establishing the Bush Foundation. Click here to view a PDF with more information about the Bush family.

"Through the Foundation, they were able to continue to help those who were less fortunate for many years. As the Foundation grew, it reflected their desire to support the changing needs of the region." [1]
