Sherwin-Williams Wins National Philanthropy Day® Corporate Leadership Award

On National Philanthropy Day®, Sherwin-Williams was awarded the Corporate Leadership Award at an event hosted by the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Greater Cleveland Chapter. This day of recognition acknowledges charitable contributions to the local Cleveland community, and it is the chapter’s largest annual fundraiser.


Youth Challenge (YC) nominated Sherwin-Williams for this award in recognition of our 36-year partnership with YC. This nonprofit organization brings together young people with physical disabilities and teen volunteers who inspire each other through adapted sports, recreation and social growth activities. In 1986, The Sherwin-Williams Women’s Club (SWWC) made its first donation to YC, and over the following three decades, the partnership has continued to blossom. YC is now the ongoing partner for the annual SWWC 5K Run and 1-Mile Walk & Roll. 2022 was a record year, with more than 1,400 registered participants and net proceeds of more than $83,000 raised to support the YC organization.
