At the U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities we champion sustainable forestry through the support and funding of programs that strengthen the well-being of our forests and the communities that depend on their effective management.

We are catalysts for positive change, balancing economic, environmental and social benefits. This equilibrium is essential for the long-term health of our forests and industrial prosperity. Our unwavering focus on the future fuels our drive to create innovative, market-driven solutions that fortify the forestry industry and safeguard the environment for generations to come.
