Overview:

NOTE: Applications are processed throughout the year — but may be submitted at any time during our cycle year. The Weyerhaeuser Giving fund grant application deadline is listed above. Applications are generally reviewed on an ongoing basis, throughout the year.

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.

The focus areas are listed below:

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

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

In addition to the focus areas for community giving noted above, the Giving Fund will also consider a select few highpriority national/international initiatives directly related to the sustainability and importance of working forests and the products and services they provide for people and the planet. THIS IS BY INVITATION ONLY. Priorities include sustainability issues related to forestry, sustainable forest products, housing, improving ecosystems, and renewable, green energy.
