About the SFI Community Grants Program
SFI Community Grants are awarded for collaborative community-based projects, activities, or events that support SFI’s efforts to connect communities to forests. Projects provide educators with tools to showcase green career pathways for students, incorporate Indigenous knowledge into forest management planning and education curriculum, and engage youth in outdoor education and conservation projects. SFI has awarded 101 Community Grants totaling more than $950,000 to foster community-building projects the 2010. Learn more: forests.org/communitygrants.
The Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI) advances sustainability through forest-focused collaborations. We are an independent, nonprofit organization that leverages four interconnected pillars of work: standards, conservation, community, and education. SFI works with the forest sector, conservation groups, academics, researchers, brand owners, resource professionals, landowners, educators, local communities, Indigenous Peoples, and governments. Collaborating with our network, we leverage SFI-certified forests and products as powerful tools to help solve sustainability challenges such as climate action, conservation of biodiversity, education of future generations, and sustainable economic development.
