International Paper Grant Workshop
The International Paper New Bern Mill celebrates 50 years within the community and will award $80,000 in foundation grants in 2019. The mill is hosting a free workshop to review the application process with interested nonprofit organizations and federal entities.
The workshop is scheduled for Thursday, March 28 from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. in the mill’s Administration Building Conference Room at 1785 Weyerhaeuser Road, Vanceboro and will focus on eligibility, criteria and restrictions. Reservations to attend the workshop are required as space is limited; however, attendance is not mandatory for eligibility.
Grants are awarded by the International Paper Foundation, which makes sustainable investments to address critical needs in the communities where International Paper employees live and work.
Signature Causes include:
- Education - Priority given to literacy programs from birth through 3rd grade.
- Hunger - Community programs that provide access to food for those in need or provide solutions to alleviate hunger.
- Health & Wellness – Programs that promote basic health and human needs.
- Disaster Relief – Programs that reduce suffering or saves lives as a result of a natural disaster.
Applicants must be a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization or qualifying federal entity to apply for a grant. To be considered, organizations must have a program that addresses critical community needs and have measurable objectives to demonstrate impact. Nonprofits are invited to take an eligibility quiz to see if their program meets the foundation’s criteria. Applications will be accepted online at ipgiving.com until Sept. 30, 2019.
