Grants to USA and Canada nonprofit organizations in multiple states and provinces to improve the quality of life in eligible regions. Funding is intended to address priority areas of diversity, equity, and inclusion; workforce development; civic and cultural growth; human services; environmental stewardship; education and youth development; and affordable housing. The purpose of these grants is to promote programs that serve Weyerhaeuser facility communities located in the following states and provinces: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington State, West Virginia, Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, and Saskatchewan.

Weyerhaeuser’s communities range from rural to metropolitan, with unique priorities and needs. Employees who serve on local advisory committees develop funding priorities to support their particular community within the following focus areas. These focus areas allow flexibility for a variety of giving across the different communities, while providing a strong framework for the local giving philosophy to cultivate growing minds and bodies, promote sustainable communities, and nurture communities’ quality of life.

Pre-Application Information:

The Weyerhaeuser Giving Fund grant application deadline is: September 30, 2021

Applications are generally reviewed on an ongoing basis, throughout the year.

Generally, funding decisions are communicated after receipt of a recommendation to fund your request from your local Advisory Committee (not when y ou submit your grant application). Many of the committees wait until after the deadline has passed to prioritize and finalize their grant recommendations, which means you might not hear results until winter after the September deadline.

Local giving is specific to each community. It is recommended that applicants make a local connection with the employee advisory committee members in their area. If your organization serves an area in which we operate, and you would like a local contact name and number, please contact the Giving Fund directly.

If you are seeking funding for a national project or research program that is directly related to the sustainability and importance of working forests, you will need to contact the Giving Fund. Industry-related national and/or research funding is by invitation only.
