Dedicated to making lasting positive impacts
Global Community Engagement
PPG’s global community engagement activities are overseen by the PPG Foundation Board and the Global Giving Committee, both composed of chairman and chief executive officer Tim Knavish and leaders from PPG's legal, human resources and finance functions.
The global community engagement strategy is led by the executive director of the PPG Foundation and corporate global social responsibility.
The PPG Foundation is a private foundation qualified under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The PPG Foundation's board of directors meets regularly to oversee Foundation activities and the Foundation's financials are subject to an annual independent audit.
A team of U.S.-based PPG Foundation agents provides local grantmaking through the PPG Foundation in places where PPG has a presence. Working directly with non-profit partners in their communities and business areas, the PPG Foundation agents establish and build opportunities for local giving.
