About this funder:
The WestRock Foundation connects our communities to economic and environmental sustainability. We make strategic investments to conserve forests and build the manufacturing workforce of the future.
Our focus on environmental sustainability centers around water, tree and wildlife diversity conservation projects in communities where WestRock has operations. Through partnerships with the American Forest Foundation, Arbor Day Foundation, The Nature Conservancy and Trust for the Public Land, we are investing in the revitalization of longleaf pine in the southeast, protecting headwaters around the Hood Canal in Tacoma and restoring tree canopies in our communities. And because conservation requires partnership, we invest in resources and education to help family landowners manage their land more sustainably.
We are also committed to building a workforce skilled in modern manufacturing. By investing in programs like 3DE by Junior Achievement and Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta Career Bound, we aim to increase the awareness of jobs and hone the skills required for a successful career in manufacturing.
We invest in three ways
- Partnerships through our Foundation
- Local community sponsorships from WestRock
- Supporting our team members who give back to their communities
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
- WestRock Foundation grant recipients must be tax-exempt public charities or public institutions/entities.
- WestRock communities served by your organization (click here for our location map)
- Events, programs and projects our Foundation is not able to fund
- We recognize there are many non-profit organizations that do great work to support various causes that ensure residents live in safe, diverse and vibrant communities. However, there are some community investments our Foundation cannot consider, such as:
- Conferences and meetings
- Endowment campaigns
- Fraternal organizations and related events
- Fundraising events (dinners, golf tournaments, etc.)
- Scholarships, academic fellowships or research
- Sports teams and events
- Student teams, trips or competitions
- By law, our Foundation cannot make investments that result in a direct, tangible benefit to WestRock or WestRock employees.
