International Paper to award $50,000 to local nonprofits

International Paper’s Augusta mill is accepting applications for $50,000 in grants to nonprofits and schools across the area.

The International Paper Foundation has awarded more than $250,000 over the past five years through this program and is looking for organizations working to further environmental education and literacy. IP also has a category for its employees to nominate organizations in which they are involved.

The foundation makes grants to nonprofit charitable organizations classified under Section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Service code. In addition, certain municipal, county, state and federal entities, such as school districts and fire departments, are eligible.

Applicants must account for every dollar of applied funding, and the deadline for applications is Aug. 31. For more information, visit
