Ideas that Matter remains the only grant program of its kind in the industry. Since 1999, Ideas that Matter has funded over 500 nonprofit projects, contributing $12 million worldwide to causes that enhance our lives, our communities and our planet. Sappi believes that the creative ideas of designers can have an impact beyond the aesthetic and that those ideas can be a powerful force for social good.

Applications are due by July 19, 2013. Judging takes place in August and grants are announced in September and awarded in October. Projects must be fully implemented within six months of receiving awards. Detailed application information here.
