IP Giving

International Paper makes things that weave our world together, but making what matters is much more than manufacturing and distribution. What makes International Paper is our commitment to do the right things, in the right way, for the right reasons. We want our communities around the world to recognize us as neighbors, employers and environmental stewards. IP Giving supports, enhances and respects the communities we serve by being active citizens in a variety of philanthropic efforts conducted through the International Paper Foundation (IP Foundation) and our businesses. Our impact touches hundreds of community based non-profit organizations in the communities where our employees live and work with the goal of making people's lives better.
