Weyerhaeuser Giving Fund
Caring about the communities in which we operate is a key component of our sustainability strategy. Since 1948, the Weyerhaeuser Company
Foundation played an integral role in the philanthropic efforts of the company. Our formal philanthropic program is now directed through
a Weyerhaeuser Company program we call The Weyerhaeuser Giving Fund. Combined, these programs have provided more than $215 million in donations
over 64 years.
We believe it is important to nourish the quality of life in the communities where we operate, and help our communities thrive.
We offer grants through the Weyerhaeuser Giving Fund to support programs in local Weyerhaeuser locations in the U.S. and Canada to help cultivate
growing minds and bodies, promote sustainable communities, and nourish the quality of life in these Weyerhaeuser communities.
Employees in our locations serve as advisors to the Weyerhaeuser Giving Fund, make funding recommendations based on the unique needs and
priorities of their particular communities, and help create better places to live, work and play.
A small portion of our grantmaking supports select, high-priority national and international initiatives that are directly related to the
sustainability and importance of working forests and the products and services they provide for people and the planet. This may include sustainability issues related
to forestry, sustainable forest products, housing, improving ecosystems, and renewable, green energy. Applications in this category are
accepted by invitation only.
