Community Engagement

Giving back is part of our proud Company legacy. Our community engagement efforts, which include an intentional focus on supporting causes and charitable organizations important to our employees, are targeted where we can have the greatest impact. As a global industry leader, we embrace the opportunity and responsibility to be a positive change agent for under-represented communities, where the challenges are particularly acute. 

Inspiring Positive Change for Our Neighbors

Led by The Sherwin-Williams Foundation, our charitable giving is accomplished through strategic affiliations with key community partners. We prioritize support for efforts seeking to create sustainable impact in the following focus areas: 

  • Access to safe and healthy housing 
  • Advancing a skilled workforce that sustains inclusive, vibrant communities 
  • Beautifying and preserving assets around the world 

Amplifying the contributions of employees through significant investments in matching gifts and providing tools to ensure they can easily connect with and support those causes most important to them remains a hallmark of our matching gifts program. In addition, Sherwin-Williams supports employee giving by covering all administrative fees associated with donations made through the Company’s online giving platform.

Community Engagement

Meeting the Needs of Our Communities 

Our local teams are empowered to provide product and talent to preserve and beautify community assets throughout our footprint. Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) actively support our communities, creating programs and campaigns to provide support where it is needed most.

 

For example, the Sherwin-Williams Women’s Club, founded in 1911, has been committed to charitable giving and community engagement, with the club’s fundraisers dating back to 1912. In 2020, the club reconfigured many of its annual fundraisers to continue its charitable legacy.

Uplifting Fellow Employees During Crises

When disaster strikes, we respond. Through the Company’s Employee Relief Fund, team members raise thousands of dollars in support of employees and their families affected by natural disaster or hardship. 

 

Following three hurricanes in the Southeastern United States in 2020, employees from across the country mobilized to support affected colleagues and rebuild communities devastated by the storms. Similarly, employees from the South Alabama District of The Americas Group (TAG) delivered bottled water and other supplies to TAG Gulf Coast District team members to assist with Hurricane Sally recovery.
