At LP, we want to Build A Better World by fostering strong relationships and supporting the communities where we live and work. We rely on our local communities to be able to source the materials on which our business depends.
LP and the LP Foundation contribute both cash and product to deserving 501(c)(3) nonprofits and public schools that fall within our giving areas, including housing programs, environmental programs, K–12 public schools, and programs that support diversity, equity and inclusion in the communities near LP mills and offices.
Grant and sponsorship requests are reviewed by a seven-member Board of Trustees annually and approved on the basis of merit and alignment with our giving areas. For 2021, grant proposals are due by March 31, 2021. LP grants are normally awarded in the May-June timeframe. To learn more about the process, click here.

LP teams have come together from across the U.S., Canada and South America to make a real impact in their communities by repairing homes, working with children, cleaning beaches, and helping raise awareness of our environment and the importance of conservation and sustainability.
LP employees volunteer as individuals and teams across the company. A few recent volunteer highlights, include:
