    COMMUNITY GIVING

    We support U.S. and Canadian communities where we have a significant presence or business interest. These communities range from rural to metropolitan, each with unique priorities and needs. Our employees serve on local advisory committees for our Giving Fund and develop funding priorities within four focus areas to support their particular communities. This provides a strong companywide framework for giving while allowing flexibility to meet unique needs in our different communities.

     

    Focus Areas

    Through the Weyerhaeuser Giving Fund, we concentrate the majority of our funding in four focus areas:

    • Affordable Housing and Shelter
    • Education and Youth Development
    • Environmental Stewardship
    • Human Services, Civic and Cultural Growth

    Where We Give

    Our giving is limited to areas where we have a significant presence, including communities where we have operations and/or where we own or manage forestland in the Unites States and Canada.

    Not all communities listed below will be eligible for grants. If you have a question about whether your location qualifies as a Weyerhaeuser operating area, please contact givingfund@weyerhaeuser.com.

    GRANT APPLICATIONS

    Our 2019 grant application cycle has ended.

    We will re-open grant applications for the 2020 cycle in early February.

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    • When is the application deadline?
      Applications are processed throughout the year — but may be submitted at any time during our cycle year. Applications must be completed through our online portal, and submitted with all required attachments. We do not accept paper applications or proposals.

      The Weyerhaeuser Giving fund grant application deadline is:

      October 1, 2019
       
    • What is the application review process? 
      Applications are generally reviewed on an ongoing basis, throughout the year.
       
    • What grant amount can I expect? 
      Grants vary in scale in relationship to our presence in the community and the philanthropic budget available for the year. The minimum grant awarded is $1,000.
       
    • When will I be notified? 
      The majority of our communications with you will be through the application portal. We generally communicate our funding decision after we receive a recommendation to fund your request from your local Advisory Committee (not when you submit your grant application). Many of our committees wait until after the deadline has passed to prioritize and finalize their grant recommendations, which means you might not hear from us until winter after the October deadline.
       
    • My application was rejected. Why can't you fund my project/organization?
      We regret we cannot fund all applications we receive.
       
    • I'm having trouble/need help. Who can I contact?
      Send an email to givingfund@weyerhaeuser.com.

     

    National Grantmaking

    A small portion of our grant making supports high-priority national initiatives directly related to the sustainability and importance of working forests and the products and services they provide. This may include sustainability issues related to forestry, sustainable forest products, housing, improving ecosystems, and green energy. Applications in this category are accepted by invitation only.
