Become A Partner

Make an impact for the corrugated packaging industry and pledge your support by becoming an ICPF Corporate Partner.

ICPF is working to strengthen existing programs and services, while also expanding the foundation’s work to address other critical needs. This has included creating a social media presence, building partnerships with the education community, beginning to expand student and faculty knowledge at trade schools and community colleges, and developing marketing/communications tools to promote the many benefits of choosing a career in corrugated packaging. We’re also examining opportunities to collaborate with other organizations and associations, to capitalize on their strengths and resources to ensure we get the most value for our efforts. We’re just getting started and there is a lot more work to do.

The corrugated packaging industry has provided generous support and funding to ICPF over the years. ICPF’s endowment fund is drawn from annually (at a percentage that ensures continual fund growth) to support efforts, but to really make a difference, ICPF needs pledge support from industry companies.

Caitlin Salaverria, ICPF President

ICPF corporate partners are committed to attracting talent into the corrugated packaging industry. These independent corrugated manufacturers, integrated manufacturers and suppliers to the industry make predetermined pledges to support ICPF’s programs and services.

Pledge levels to become a partner are based upon size of company, with similar sized companies requested to make similar size pledges.  Pledges for a corrugated manufacturer (a CorrAlliance pledge) begin at $50,000 (for one location) and a base rate of $100,000 for multiple locations. Pledge levels for supplier companies (a PaceSetter pledge) begin at $100,000. The pledge can be paid over time ranging from one year to 10 years, with the average being 5-7 years. ICPF is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation and pledge donations to ICPF are tax deductible in the U.S. to the full extent of the law.
