Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Alliances & Advocacy, Arts & Culture

Mission: Our Mission is to recover leftover paint from businesses and residences, reprocess it and distribute it to vulnerable individuals and families in developing countries around the world.

Results: we've mobilized over 200 companies across 25 states in the U.S. and 5 countries to donate their non-consumable paint for our humble cause. As many as 5000-to-6000 gallons of paint have been shipped at a time to 18 countries in West Africa, Central America, the Caribbean, and war-torn areas of the Middle East and beyond -- even places like New York, Chicago, Indiana, Westside Community Atlanta, New Orleans, and Broward Community in Florida suffering from floods, storms, earthquakes and other natural disasters -- have received great number of gallons of paint donations from Global Paint for Charity. The paint beautifies dilapidated schools, churches and family homes in poor communities.

Target demographics: help protect the environment, create jobs, brighten their future and spur creativity, but it also has a real health benefits in an age of uncertainty surrounding global outbreaks.

Direct beneficiaries per year: distribute 120 000 gallons across 18 developing countries around the world. We work with volunteers on the ground to apply a splash of color to the lives of the underprivileged. It’s estimated that 80 percent of the world’s homes and schools face the dreary reality of unpainted walls, and more than 70 million children have never had access to a painted classroom. Crazy, right? 6 years ago Rony Delgarde founded the organization to help change the statistic and hopefully beautify the world. Now is your chance to help us brighten more and supporting the cause. Please help us raise awareness about this important cause.

Geographic areas served: The Global Paint for Charity, Inc. (AKA “GPC” or “Global Paint”) is a national non-profit organization headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia .

Programs: Paint can protect against mold, bacteria and germs, the presence of which have a disproportionately negative effect on health outcomes in poorer communities. Paint can even be mixed with insecticide to stave off mosquitoes, which carry malaria and other viruses like Zika and yellow fever that kill more than 6 million people per year. Also, the organization and our collaborations support small business owners, and create a Microfinance program to help the local underprivileged people to launch a small paint business and assist them to realize their dreams.

I had the great pleasure of working at Global Paint for Charity. In my capacity as volunteer, I found the organization has the best programs to change lives and both humbling and exhilarating. Most often a many people can’t afford a gallon of paint to renovate their home. Global Paint gives those people a chance and provide the paint to many of those people. I got a chance to volunteer with a group from the United Way to paint a house for an elderly widow in downtown Atlanta and I can say the outcome was positive. It is humbling to be reminded how fortunate I am to live the life that I do every day. According to the Global Paint website, over 200,000 gallons of paint have been sent to people in need . To me that is truly amazing. The experience was so positive that it has made me rethink about my current goal of helping others in our community and further explore more painting projects to be involved. It is impossible to sum up the experience any better but I wish many people would read this note and find a way to help the Global Paint. It will show that we can accomplish a lot more together. Thank you Rony Delgarde for letting me contribute to this amazing cause.

Rony Delgarde is truly changing the world one gallon of paint at a time! His organization, Global Paints For Charity sets the benchmark for how a non profit should operate. Ive worked with Rony for over two years now and I can tell you that he truly walks his talk. Rony is the first person to get his hands dirty when Global Paints is doing a community paint drive. Rony is a true leader among leaders and a wonderful human being who's truly making a difference in the world.

I recommend Rony and the Global Paint for Charities foundation. I had over 60 gallons of paint that would have cost me $5 a gallon to discard. But Thanks to him and his foundation. They took it all off my hands for free. Of course I gave them a small monetary donation, but it was so much easier and cheaper than disposing the paint myself. Thanks Rony, and Keep up the Good Work!

I interned at Global Paint for Charity last summer, and was introduced to the organization through a phone conversation with Rony Delgarde. From the start, I was excited to get involved with this charity because of Rony’s infectious enthusiasm for not just the paint donations that the group received, but because of the connections that were being made as a result of these efforts. Though Rony was not my immediate supervisor, he still checked in with me and my project multiple times over the course of the summer. He offered valuable feedback on ways that I could better tailor my messages and encouraged me to get involved in posting content on the organization’s social media accounts. He also invited me to attend two memorable events, an informational event at General Assembly and an entrepreneurship event at the Atlanta Tech Village. These events helped enrich my overall internship experience because I was able to meet other people, hear about their roles and grow professionally. Rony has a strong passion for this project, which is very apparent in the way he talks about it with other people, whether they are interns like myself or potential donors.

"I recently completed a renovation project here at home . . . and at the same time removed several gallons of old unused paint from my attic. Thanks to an article (quite some time ago) in the AJC about Rony Delgarde and his "Global Paint for Charity" I was able to safely dispose of unused paint while at the same time helping others. I just wanted to let you know that when I read the article in the AJC, I cut it out and saved it . . . and have since shared it with others. Without the article about "Global Paint" I would never have known about this organization. I doubt they can afford the money necessary to advertise or otherwise promote their charity, but thanks to the article I was informed about their organization and was able to contact them with a donation. It was a win-win. Anyone who has ever pondered where or how to dispose of paint should know about this organization and be made aware they, too, can help themselves while helping others. I hope you will consider giving "Global Paints for Charity" more support in the future.

Sincerely, Harry Shuman"
