Signature Giving Programs

International Paper is proud of its legacy of signature giving established through key partnerships. Our programs address critical community need in the places where our employees live and work.

For decades, International Paper employees have joined together to raise funds for local United Way chapters and partner agencies across the globe. 

Employee Relief Fund

The International Paper Employee Relief Fund (ERF) is a unique non-profit with a primary focus to provide temporary relief and support to employees whose homes have been affected by natural disasters. 


Coins 4 Kids®

In 2004, the International Paper Foundation formed a partnership called Coins 4 Kids® with World Food Program USA to fight hunger in Nairobi, Kenya. Over the past decade, the Foundation and our employees donated more than $10 million to Coins 4 Kids, providing more than 40 million meals to schoolchildren in and around Nairobi. The 2016 Coins 4 Kids campaign marked International Paper's last, as we turn our charitable efforts to the communities where we live and work. In addition to our 2016 contributions, the International Paper Foundation contributed $750,000 to the World Food Program so it can continue its mission in Kenya.
