Signature Causes

Our global community engagement efforts include grants, financial contributions, volunteer opportunities and product donations.

We continue to be a force for good in our communities. We make sustainable investments to protect and improve the lives of our employees and mobilize our people, products and resources to address critical needs in the communities where we live and work. Most of the Company's donations and IP Foundation grants support projects or programs focused on our signature causes – education, hunger, health and wellness, and disaster relief.

The future of our communities depends on the children, and therefore, we support strategic partners that focus on helping children succeed via a comprehensive approach to education. Literacy, particularly from birth through 3rd grade, is our primary focus because reading skills form the foundation for all childhood learning.


We work with food banks and other agencies to address hunger and food security for children, families and seniors. These organizations provide meals, access to healthy foods and other programs in the communities where our employees live and work.

Health & Wellness

We engage our employees and work with agencies to promote healthy living habits and achieve measurable improvements in health and wellness.

Disaster Relief

We partner with agencies to help communities prepare for and to recover from natural disasters, and we use our Employee Relief Fund to support our affected colleagues.
