We support and create thriving communities in the places we call home.
Through PPG and the PPG Foundation, we make financial contributions to local organizations around the world, with a focus on education and community sustainability. We also empower our workforce to volunteer and give back. Our employees are often found in classrooms, playgrounds, hospitals and more. They pick up their brushes to apply more than paint. They spark students’ aspirations, inspire hope and revitalize communities.
