Social Commitment

Paint shapes people's daily living environment, in private as well as in public spaces. DAW therefore provides sponsorship awards in areas where its technical expertise is of particular importance, such as the painting trade. Supporting children and adults who need help is also an important concern for us.

Help & Encourage

As a family-owned business, two things are important to us: helping people and promoting talent. By combining these two concerns, we want to make a positive contribution to society.

Supporting children

All children should have the same chances in life - that's why one of our donations focuses is on children's aid projects.

Promoting craftsmanship

Our sponsorship awards honor craftsmanship and examples of high-quality building culture. 

Local Help

DAW supports charitable institutions - especially in the vicinity of its headquarters in Ober-Ramstadt.

Helping in times of need

We help where people unexpectedly found themselves in need. By donating to aid organizations, we aim to support those who in need help in disaster situations.

Practical help locally

In addition to providing rapid assistance in emergency situations, we focus our attention on projects that improve the opportunities and living conditions of disadvantaged groups - especially children.

Support for children and adolescents

At our headquarters in Ober-Ramstadt, we are committed to the children's and youth organization Die ARCHE e. V. in Frankfurt. In addition to financial donations, employees also help by donating food or Christmas wish campaigns.

Promoting inclusion

For more than ten years, we have been working together with the Nieder-Ramstädter Diakonie Foundation, which is involved in supporting disabled persons, young people and the elderly. In addition to financial support for the foundation, DAW also provides employment for people with disabilities at the Ober-Ramstadt site.

Awards for craftsmanship & architecture

The future of the German painting and varnishing trade is very important for us. That is why we are committed to the industry with a sponsorship award. We also honor architects who stand out in the design of buildings through color, surface design and structure.
