Giving back with colour

Paint4Good is donating $50,000 in free painting services to give back to the Calgary community. Many charities, non-profit and community organizations have had to close their spaces during the COVID-19 pandemic. Paint4Good aims to brighten these empty spaces so they are refreshed and ready to inspire when people are able to return to them.

About Paint4Good

Paint4Good is a charity painting initiative created by The Urban Painter in April 2020 out of a desire to support the Calgary community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Seeing charities and other community support organizations having to close their spaces during this time, The Urban Painter teamed up with Benjamin Moore to launch Paint4Good, offering free painting services to these organizations to create brighter, more colourful spaces.

Paint4Good will donate 10 painting projects worth $5,000 each, for a total of $50,000 in free painting services to local charities, non-profits and community spaces. The Urban Painter is volunteering its painting crews to bring these projects to life and Benjamin Moore has donated paint and painting materials.
