The Global Paint for Charity, Inc. (AKA “GPC” or “Global Paint”) is a non-profit organization headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia working together with commercial businesses and other non-profit organizations, residential households, and Paint Manufacturers to recycle post-consumer Latex paint for our cause. We strive to protect the environment, change lives and beautify poor communities throughout the world. We started our programs in March 2010, hoping to collect 500 gallons of paint to renovate a school and an orphanage within the year. The spectacular response from our supporters, partners, volunteers and the media has encouraged us to continue to collect paint and raise money to distribute it in very poor villages in isolated rural locations around the world. We have redistributed more than 120,000 gallons of paint to help with renovations and rejuvenation of family homes, homeless shelters, schools, churches, orphanages, and hospitals in many major cities in the U.S. and targeted communities around the world.

While there may be more pressing issues in developing countries than the facade of a wall, a classroom or a building, we believe that the right color in a room can truly change the ambiance of a place and the attitudes of those who inhabit it.

We are changing lives and saving the world one gallon of paint at a time.
