Mission Statement

The Weyerhaeuser Family Foundation engages family members in meaningful, responsible philanthropy that promotes the welfare of human and natural resources.

Foundation Background

On January 24, 1950, the Weyerhaeuser Family Foundation, Inc. was incorporated under the provisions of the Minnesota Nonprofit Corporation Act. The Weyerhaeuser Family Foundation, Inc. is supported and governed by members of the Weyerhaeuser Family. The Foundation is not affiliated with the Weyerhaeuser Company Foundation.

The Trustees will consider grant applications that fall within the bounds of the Foundation's areas of interest; however, the Trustees select for support only those organizations exempt under US tax laws and only support projects and programs which address a prime need and are equipped to make a major contribution under the circumstances existing at the particular time.

The Foundation requests that the areas of interest, restrictions, and application process be reviewed carefully before submitting a Stage One application. Please see Guidelines for International InitiativeChildren's Initiative or Sustainable Forest and Communities Initiative.
