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.

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.
