OUR "WAVES" MAKE QUITE A SPLASH

Citizenship is a core value at Weyerhaeuser. Nowhere is this more evident than in the countless ways our employees generously offer their skills, compassion and dedication to improve the world we live in. They're at the heart of our company giving program, and we're proud to support their work through our Weyerhaeuser Active Volunteer Employees program, known as WAVES.


Case Study

After meeting a threshold of volunteer hours, individuals or teams can apply for WAVES grants to support the organizations they're passionate about in their communities. In 2015, our employees, retirees, families and friends contributed more than 40,299 volunteer hours through this program and our Giving Fund awarded 179 WAVES grants totaling $320,000 to the organizations where they volunteered.

We also honor some of our most outstanding volunteers four times a year.



AND THE WAVES KEEP ROLLING

Other ways our company sponsors employee efforts to give back include:

  • Diapers: From 2012 to 2015, our employees collected and donated more than 4 millions diapers to families in need.
  • Disasters: Our Disaster Relief Employee Volunteer Program allows individuals to take up to 80 hours per year of paid time off to help a Weyerhaeuser location or community affected by disaster. Employees volunteer with a qualified nonprofit agency or government agency that is actively working to assist the affected community. In certain cases, employees may also partner with a qualified organization outside North America if Weyerhaeuser has formally declared support to the rebuilding efforts.
  • Workplace: Even at work, our employees are devoted volunteers. From diversity-network events to local fundraising drives and our headquarters-region green team (named "The Sustainables"), we encourage our employees to think outside of their normal work scope, spend time on the issues they care about and have fun doing it!
