Keep America Beautiful Affiliate Stories

Through our programs and public-private partnerships, we help to strengthen communities. Keep America Beautiful works with corporations, government and civic entities, educational institutions, nonprofits and other organizations to address complex challenges on both a local and national scale. Our partners contribute more than financial support — they contribute ideas, in-kind support, and the time and power of volunteers — all to help us empower stronger communities. Each and every day, Keep America Beautiful helps turn public spaces into beautiful places, helping to drive positive social, environmental and economic change.  By working together, we can be successful in improving our communities.
