Making a difference in and for our communities is part of the proud Sherwin-Williams legacy. Our community engagement efforts include an intentional focus on supporting causes and charitable organizations important to our employees, communities, customers and stakeholders around the world. We strive to maximize our community engagement impact by committing to causes where we believe we can make the biggest difference for our neighbors.
Inspiring Positive Change for Our Neighbors
Led by The Sherwin-Williams Foundation, and supported by our employees, 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.

Uplifting Fellow Employees During Crises
When disaster strikes and crisis occurs, we respond. Through the Company’s Employee Relief Fund and other employee-driven efforts, team members donate their time and talents and raise thousands of dollars in support of employees and their families affected by natural disaster or hardship.
For example, many employees led efforts in the EMEAI region in 2022 to support and care for our impacted employees, customers and refugees amid the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. Our employees in Poland, France, the Netherlands, the U.K. and beyond worked to help the affected families and communities. All the while, they remained focused on ensuring employee safety and meeting the needs of our customers.
