The Weyerhaeuser Family Foundation’s Children’s Initiative

The Weyerhaeuser Family Foundation's Children's Initiative provides support to direct service programs throughout the United States that create and promote stability, resilience, and healing for children who have witnessed domestic violence.

The Foundation gives priority to programs that:

Organizations must be classified by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Only programs operating within the United States will be considered.

In order to be considered, programs must meet specific requirements including:
