Perhaps it is because so much of our work is centered in smaller towns and cities. Or maybe it's because after decades of forest management, we appreciate that everything, one way or another, is connected. Improving the quality of life in the communities where we have a presence is as important now as it was in 1903, when PotlatchDeltic Corporation was founded. The sense of community and the opportunity to be part of what’s important to our employees and our communities is integral to the work we do at PotlatchDeltic.
We have a long tradition of philanthropic giving through charitable contributions and through our support of employee giving. Our giving program focuses on the communities where we live and do business, and is concentrated in four areas: community programs, conservation of natural resources, education and major gifts.
We make gifts to a wide range of community programs, seeking to support as many aspects of our diverse communities as we can. We contribute to arts organizations, youth sports programs, clubs and more. We also match our employees’ gifts to United Way at a rate of 50 cents on the dollar.
Conservation of Natural Resources
We support both local and national programs dedicated to the effort of conserving natural resources. At the local level, our gifts support conservation education, programs at various conservation organizations and project work. We support organizations such as The Nature Conservancy, the Trust for Public Land, The Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership and the Conservation Fund.
PotlatchDeltic also maintains a keen awareness for opportunities to support education at all levels. We match our employees’ gifts to qualifying educational institutions up to a total of $1,500 per employee. We are also a major sponsor of the Idaho Governor’s Cup Scholarship Fund.
Periodically we make major gifts to capital campaigns and programs that are central to the quality of life in our communities.
PotlatchDeltic employees have a long tradition of volunteerism. Employees support programs in their communities by serving on boards or in other volunteer capacities. Our team encourages employees to explore their passions, build relationships with their communities and make meaningful contributions.
