At WestRock, caring about our communities is part of who we are as a company. It reflects our values around integrity, respect, accountability and excellence. The WestRock Foundation plays an important role in the company’s program of engaging our communities and involving our employees to help shape positive change.
The Foundation focuses on three key areas for strategic grants and volunteer initiatives:
- Sustainable Communities: The WestRock Foundation partners with organizations that help people and families rely on themselves, and offer support to their neighbors. Efforts include support of central business districts and work with community youth programs.
- Education: Education is critical to ensuring tomorrow’s workforce is prepared to be both creative and well-qualified to meet the needs of the future.
- Environmental Stewardship: Through educational programs, outdoor learning centers and other facilities, the Foundation’s efforts help preserve the natural environment for current and future generations. The Foundation also teams with leaders in science and public policy to support care of ecosystems and responsible land management.
