The Georgia-Pacific Foundation, established in 1958, funds grants for charitable purposes. As a good corporate citizen, Georgia-Pacific creates value in its communities by addressing mutual issues of importance which improve the quality of life in the communities where our employees live and work.
The Georgia-Pacific Foundation uses its Four Focus Areas (Four E’s): Education, Environment, Enrichment of Community and Entrepreneurship as guideposts for giving, both in terms of grants provided to nonprofit organizations and in decision-making around employee participation in company-sponsored volunteer programs. The Four E’s enables us to ensure that our charitable giving creates value and translates into strengthening our communities.
