Benjamin Moore employees take the company’s purpose to heart: To steward an organization that enriches the lives of our people and communities for generations to come.

Our philanthropy program unites in-kind donations of paint, employee volunteer hours and financial contributions through GIVING MOORE, a Foundation of Benjamin Moore & Co. In addition, each Benjamin Moore facility supports local programs that strengthen community ties. Beneficiaries of local charitable efforts include first responders, educational and youth initiatives, environmental conservation programs, community food banks and disaster relief programs.

Building Sustainable Communities Through Education

Benjamin Moore supports a variety of education initiatives, including scholarships and color and design education. Benjamin Moore’s GIVING MOORE Foundation partners with the American Institute of Architects’ Architects Foundation to provide scholarships to students working towards their degree in an architectural program accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board. Since 2015, GIVING MOORE has donated $100,000 to support five scholars.

Community Outreach

As part of our commitment to the public at large, Benjamin Moore is proud to assist a number of community outreach programs that support those in need. Together, Benjamin Moore and our GIVING MOORE Foundation partner with YouthBuild programs in the U.S. through in-kind and cash donations. Through YouthBuild programs, low-income young people work towards their high school diplomas or equivalent and learn basic construction and job-related skills while building affordable housing and other community assets.

Supporting Veterans

Benjamin Moore is committed to supporting U.S. veterans and their families. We are the official paint provider of the Gary Sinise Foundation (GSF), a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping wounded heroes increase their mobility and reclaim their self-reliance. GSF is the largest in-kind recipient of Benjamin Moore products. From the inception of our partnership through June 2017, we have donated nearly 3,000 gallons of paint and helped GSF welcome home 15 severely wounded heroes to their new specially adapted smart homes.

Preserving Architectural Heritage

Benjamin Moore is proud of our role in preserving America’s architectural heritage. In 2017, Benjamin Moore announced a new partnership with the National Trust for Historic Preservation that will result in repainting many historic sites across the U.S. Additionally, Benjamin Moore is the exclusive paint sponsor for Mansion in May Designer Showhouse and Gardens, the signature fundraising event of the Women’s Association for Morristown Medical Center. Proceeds from the 2017 fundraiser at Alnwick Hall in New Jersey benefited the Center for Nursing Innovation and Research at Morristown Medical Center.
