Transforming Lives and Local Communities

At Benjamin Moore, we believe paint is transformational, and color can encourage tranquility and boost energy. Since 2019, Benjamin Moore and the American Cancer Society® (ACS) have been transforming the organization’s Hope Lodges across the U.S. to create welcoming spaces for patients and caregivers as they receive cancer treatment away from home. From brand new facilities in Dallas, TX, Houston, TX and Oklahoma City, OK, to upgrading lodges in Minneapolis, MN, Rochester, MN and Lexington, KY, Benjamin Moore has provided more than 3,000 gallons of paint in palettes curated in collaboration with local designers and retailers.

Our work with partners, such as the New York Rangers, has allowed us to refurbish community hockey rinks, donate helmets to youth hockey programs – including Ice Hockey in Harlem – and enhance neighborhoods with inspirational murals. We continue to seek ways to support veterans, underserved communities, and families in need.
