About the U.S. Endowment for Forestry & Communities

Protecting the Health and Vitality of Working Forests

U.S. Endowment for Foresty and CommunitiesThe U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities is a not-for-profit corporation established in 2006 at the request of the governments of the United States and Canada.

The Endowment works collaboratively with partners in the public and private sectors to advance systemic, transformative and sustainable change for the health and vitality of the nation’s working forests and forest-reliant communities.

The goal of the Endowment is to ensure that America’s forests are sustainably managed to meet broad societal objectives such as marketable products, clean waters, wildlife habitats and other ecological services, while maintaining healthy and vibrant forest-related communities.

As an organization, the Endowment has been charged with two main purposes: to create, support and administer educational and charitable causes in timber-reliant communities; and to launch and oversee educational and public-interest projects addressing sustainability of forests as sources of building materials, wildlife habitats, bio-energy, recreation and other values.

The Endowment operates under a “theory of change” that focuses on work in three areas: retaining and restoring healthy working forests; promoting and capturing multiple value streams; and enhancing community capacity, collaboration and leadership.
