We are committed to protecting the health and safety of all the communities where our people live and work and to making each community better.
We actively support community organizations, projects and programs that meet important social, educational, environmental and economic needs. We do so through philanthropic contributions and through active encouragement of employee volunteerism and community leadership.
The MeadWestvaco Foundation has a long tradition of generosity in such areas as health and human services, education and the arts. Our primary focus is to help strengthen and enrich the communities where MWV has major operations, and where MWV employees and their families live and work. Beyond our communities, we provide contributions to address issues of special interest such as the environment and public policy affecting trade and the economy.
MWV Community Advisory Panels in many localities provide forums where MWV can learn about important community goals and where members of the community can learn more about MWV.
