IP Foundation

International Paper Company conducts most of its U.S. philanthropic activities through its foundation, International Paper Foundation. From its inception in 1952 and continuing today, the Foundation supports non-profit organizations within the communities where International Paper has operating facilities. International Paper gives back to our communities through corporate donations, in-kind contributions, employee volunteerism and IP Foundation grants to provide more that $10 million to support hundreds of community based educational, civic and cultural programs that uphold our promise to do the right things, in the right way and for the right reasons.

The Foundation's primary focus areas are:

  • Environmental Education
  • Literacy
  • Health and Human Services
  • Employee Involvement
