Where we started

During the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, our local family-run business saw an increasing need in our Calgary community of organizations, charities, and community associations. It came to our attention that many of these places needed care and attention. With many places having to close their doors to communal spaces, we saw this as an open door to help refresh some near and dear spaces within our community.

In 2020, the Paint4Good initiative donated 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. Projects included brightening up the Women in Need Society, revamping the Calgary John Howard Society, and rejuvenating Habitat For Humanity Southern Alberta.

The Paint4Good initiative would not have succeeded without the support of our partners, who graciously gave their time and supplies to bring each Paint4Good project to life.

Time and expertise in colour consultation services

And above all, thank you to all the charities and other community support organizations who applied to the Paint4Good initiative in 2020. Thank you for all the work you do to help make Calgary a happier, brighter and more positive community!

“Our mission is to create colourful communities inside and out, and as a local family owned company we wanted to find a way to give back to those who have given us so much,” says Jon Bryant, Chief of Colour at The Urban Painter. “The Paint4Good initiative allows us to support our local community and keep our team working during this challenging time. We all have something unique to give. Adding a little colour is ours.”
