NATIONAL CHARITABLE PARTNERS
AIA's Architects Foundation
Since 2015, the Benjamin Moore has partnered with the American Institute of Architect's Architects Foundation (AF) and provided $150,000 in Diversity Advancement scholarships to students working towards their degree in an NAAB accredited architectural program. Each student will receive support for up to five years of their undergraduate architectural studies.
The American Institute of Architecture Students
Benjamin Moore and the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) are helping architecture students impact their communities through AIAS’ Freedom by Design initiative. A community service program, Freedom by Design offers students the opportunity to apply design and construction solutions to make positive change. Hundreds of students participate in Freedom by Design each year and are able to learn outside the classroom working with clients, licensed architects and contractors.
American Society of Interior Designers
Since 2016, Benjamin Moore & Co. has proudly sponsored the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Student Portfolio Competition. Finalists work with design professionals to polish their resumes, portfolios, and presentation skills, culminating in a presentation at SCALE: The ASID National Student Summit. Benjamin Moore & Co. is also recognizing the efforts of these young designers by providing scholarships to top students.
Gary Sinise Foundation
Benjamin Moore & Co. is committed to supporting U.S. veterans and their families. As the official paint provider of the Gary Sinise Foundation’s R.I.S.E.

National Trust for Historic Preservation
As part of our commitment to preservation and sustainability, Benjamin Moore & Co. collaborates with the National Trust for Historic Preservation to repaint several historic sites across the U.S. Since 2017, Benjamin Moore has supplied more than 1,000 gallons of paint to help restore notable landmarks for visitors to enjoy for years to come, including Cooper Molera Adobe in Monterey, CA, Drayton Hall in Charleston, SC., Lyndhurst in Tarrytown, NY, and President Lincoln’s Cottage in Washington, D.C., among others.
