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.
Education is the key that unlocks everyone's potential.
Improving Communities where we live and work is critical.
An entrepreneurial spirit often sparks community growth.
Protecting the environment starts with everyday choices
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.
