Trust established in 1962 in WA - The Stewardship Foundation was created in 1962 by C. Davis Weyerhauser (1909-1999), the grandson of Frederick Weyerhauser, founder of the lumber and paper products company. Dave Weyerhauser felt a deep conviction to encourage organizations to share the Good News of the Christian faith. Mr. Weyerhauser served on the boards of over 60 Christian organizations and it was primarily to these organizations that his philanthropy was directed.
