Georgia-Pacific knows strong communities make life better for everyone: our employees, our neighbors and our customers.
Established in 1958, the Georgia-Pacific Foundation sets aside resources to improve life in the communities where we operate. We’ve worked with thousands of outstanding community-based programs, service projects and disaster relief efforts, focusing our investment in four areas we believe make the most impact: education, environment, enrichment and entrepreneurship.
Contributions have helped fund public school robotics and reading programs, college scholarships, job training initiatives, equipment for local fire departments, conservation programs (such as The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership and Wisconsin’s Trees for Tomorrow) and educational programs for young, female and minority entrepreneurs. Grants have also supported local chapters of charitable organizations including Habitat for Humanity, United Way and the Salvation Army.
When disaster strikes, we help communities with in-kind donations of products that meet basic needs, such as Dixie cups, cutlery and plates, bath tissue and paper towels. (Food and water are often the most immediate needs in disaster-struck areas, and it helps to have something to eat and drink from.) For example, more than 20 truckloads of our paper products, valued at $100,000, were delivered via GP partner Convoy of Hope to victims of Hurricane Harvey.
In addition, we often ship building materials to affected areas to help communities rebuild.
Grant requests are reviewed on a rolling cycle throughout the year. Early submission is encouraged.
First, see whether you’re eligible. Among other criteria, your organization or facility must be located within 30 miles of a Georgia-Pacific manufacturing community.APPLY FOR A FOUNDATION GRANT
