Communities

We are deeply connected to the communities where we operate through our businesses, our employees and the investments we make to help them thrive. Supporting our communities benefits everyone and helps ensure our company’s long-term success. From rural to urban locations, we fund valuable programs, build important relationships, and contribute volunteer time and resources.

Caring for the communities where we have an operating presence is a key component of our sustainability strategy. We made our first charitable donation in 1903 and have provided more than $215 million to our communities through our formal giving program, established in 1948.

Through the Weyerhaeuser Giving Fund we concentrate the majority of our funding in four focus areas, which are linked to our business strategies. They include:

  • Affordable housing and shelter
  • Education and youth development
  • Environmental stewardship
  • Human services, civic and cultural growth

Our community investment strategy also supports our employee volunteer efforts, builds strategic partnerships, and provides other community assistance such as disaster relief.
