International Paper Foundation

Funder: 

International Paper

Maximum Award: 

Varies

The foundation awards grants in the following areas:

Environmental education:

  • Programs for children including outdoor classrooms and science programs tied to forestry, air or water quality
  • Programs that educate and promote recycling and composting

Literacy:

  • Programs that enhance reading materials at school and community libraries
  • Programs that enhance the reading skills of children or teach English as a second language

The foundation also supports National Geographic Kids Magazine subscriptions at schools in local communities and the Earth’s Birthday Project—www.earthsbirthday.org.

The foundation will consider providing “seed” money on a one-time basis for a new “critical” community initiative, which must demonstrate support from the local community and benefit to the community at large.

Non-profits interested in funding must be located in communities where International Paper has operations or an employee base. Please contact your local facility for additional information about local deadlines and other funding requirements.
