With the help of our thousands of employees, we have an opportunity to make many positive impacts in the places we call home. We know the most powerful way to make a difference is when our employees lead the way.
To accomplish this, each of our global regions offers tailored opportunities for employees to volunteer with our nonprofit partners. From painting alongside colleagues during a Colorful Communities project to teaching STEM concepts to young kids at an afterschool program, these efforts amplify our grants and deepen our impact.

In my daily job we work on getting results, achieving our targets, protecting and beautifying the world indeed; but to engage our employees in this kind of Colorful Communities project and to work with the staff at András Pető College, who were highly committed to making the children’s lives better, was another dimension.
Empowering community commitments
The PPG Foundation offers several programs that amplify the efforts of our U.S.-based employees. These include Matching Gifts, our GIVE program which recognizes employees through volunteer grants, and a Volunteer Time Off policy. View Programs Summary (PDF)
