Rayonier Advanced Materials Foundation
Making an Impact
The Rayonier Advanced Materials United States Foundation is a private, charitable organization committed to improving the quality of life in the communities where we live and work. At RYAM, we believe the best way to enhance the communities where we operate is by building strong partnerships with businesses, residents and charitable institutions. Through the US Foundation, we are pleased to provide funding to registered charitable organizations or qualified donees, within the meaning of the Internal Revenue Service seeking to improve the health, education, and welfare of the population, as well as efforts to protect the environment.
At RYAM, we believe the best way to enhance the quality of life in the communities where we operate is by building strong partnerships with businesses, residents and charitable institutions. The Rayonier Advanced Materials US Foundation focuses its donation efforts on the following criteria:
- Relief of poverty
(food banks, soup kitchens, and low-cost housing units, etc.)
- Prioritization of education
(colleges, universities, and research institutes, etc.)
- General aid for purposes beneficial to life in the community
(animal shelters, fire and police departments, etc.)
- Environmental efforts
(preservation of wildlife habitats and endangered species, etc.)
As active members of our communities, we believe it’s important to invest and “give back” to the community fabric that helps and supports our business and where our employees live. Whether through acts of volunteer work by our employees, participating in local councils or supporting specific programs through monetary contributions, we want to be an important part of our communities.
Application submissions will open in October.
