Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA fire departments in eligible states to improve firefighting capacity in communities where the funding source has a business presence. In addition to cash grants, the funding source also provides free educational materials to engage children, parents, and teachers in fire safety. This program seeks to support local fire departments working to keep Georgia-Pacific’s communities safe.

Georgia-Pacific has facilities in the following states: Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

Since 2006, the Bucket Brigade program has contributed more than $2 million to fire departments in communities within 30 miles of a Georgia-Pacific facility through cash grants as well as educational materials and National Volunteer Fire Council memberships, which all grant applicants receive.

Cash grants are typically used to purchase new protective clothing like coats and boots and to replace damaged safety gear and aging equipment. Winners are determined based on need, impact of the grant and the uniqueness of the submitted story.

Educational Materials:
As part of the Bucket Brigade program, Georgia-Pacific partnered with the Fire & Emergency Services' Fire Safety Division of Cobb County, Georgia, to develop engaging educational materials for kids, teachers and parents. The fact is that many fires are started accidentally by children. What’s more, 23 of every 100 people who die in fires are kids. So teaching students of all ages about fire prevention and what to do in case of fire is paramount.
