The NC SFI SIC is a self-funded committee. Funds are provided by forestry firms participating in the NC SFI SIC program which either own timberlands, and/or acquire all, or a portion, of their wood needs from public and private forests in North Carolina for their manufacturing facilities. Each year, the NC SFI SIC establishes a dues structure based on a formula in order to raise the funds to be awarded as grants and for operating expenses. Firms that own forests pay a set fee per acre. For manufacturing firms, these dues are calculated by multiplying the amount of wood used from North Carolina in the preceding calendar year times a monetary factor.

Funds in recent years have been provided by these companies.
