By funding programs designed to make a positive change in our society, Sappi has helped over 500 grant winners bring their vision, strategic thinking and innovative print and communications programs to life. These partnerships—between designers and nonprofits and between designers and Sappi—prove the power of creativity to inspire action, unite people and achieve goals, as together we strive to make a difference in the world.
This year, recipients’ projects addressed a range of issues, including restorative justice, diversity and inclusion, intergenerational engagement, education, urban segregation and community building. Since 2021, entrants have been asked to align their submissions with at least one of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), ensuring that grant applications are focused on critical and timely global societal concerns.
By helping to support nonprofits—that are tackling these important issues through the impact of great design and the power of print on paper—the seven selected grants will make a difference in lives and communities around the world. We’re proud to announce the Sappi 2023 Ideas that Matter grant recipients!
Together, we can all design a better tomorrow.
