SCA, a Swedish hygiene company with offices across the U.S., is seeking applicants from the Greater Philadelphia area for its environmental education-focused grant program.
Schools and nonprofits serving students in kindergarten through 12th grade can request up to $5,000 for environmental education programs and projects. The online submission process closes on November 15.
SCA, which makes a range of consumer goods, including pulp and paper, is the largest owner of private forests in Europe. The majority of its products are manufactured with recycled content.
“We know a lot about sustainability and care about sustainability,” said Amy Bellcourt, vice president of communications at SCA.
“We thought it made perfect sense for us to do something in the community that promoted sustainable action and sustainable communities.”
The company has awarded more than $212,000 since launching its grant program in 2007. Last year, it expanded to the Philadelphia region and awarded two grants to local organizations — Radnor Middle School and The Montessori School in Dresher, Pa.
More local groups could potentially receive funding this time around, according to Bellcourt.
“We’ll look at the applicant pool and make the [grant] allocations based on the demand in each market,” she said. Prior to the deadline, organizations can send questions to email@example.com.
