Keep America Beautiful Launches Community Paint Donation Program through Support from Dow

Published December 11, 2013
National nonprofit Keep America Beautiful (KAB) and Dow have launched the KAB Community Paint Donation Program, which will award donated paint to communities throughout the country.

Dow completed its sixth year as a national sponsor of Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup (GAC) in 2013 with employees volunteering at more than 50 events in communities with Dow business locations throughout the U.S.

These merit-based grants have been developed to support KAB affiliates’ efforts to build and sustain vibrant communities at a local level. Grant awards will be used to purchase paint that features innovative raw materials provided by Dow Coating Materials.

Dow is continuing to demonstrate its commitment to making a difference in communities where it has a presence by donating materials for approximately 2,500 formulated gallons of 100 percent acrylic interior paint for community improvement projects that KAB affiliates and GAC participating organizations initiate in Dow communities.

“Thriving communities are rooted in individual responsibility and action as well as public-private partnerships,” said Becky Lyons, COO of Keep America Beautiful. “Thanks to Dow, the Community Paint Donation Program will help our network of affiliates and partnering organizations generate more positive impact in their communities.”

“Dow is proud to be a long-time supporter of KAB and we hope this effort will be a further catalyst toward building and maintaining thriving communities,” said Howard Ungerleider, executive vice president, Dow Advanced Materials. “We’re especially pleased that we can tie this important philanthropic work to our Dow Coating Materials businesses – this is the embodiment of corporate citizenship at its best.”
