Our Organization
Keep America Beautiful Inc., the nation's largest community improvement organization, has been rated the most credible environmental organization. We are proud of a more than 50-year legacy of success stories of American volunteer initiatives, a powerful national network of over 1,000 affiliate and participating organizations leading volunteers in achieving measurable results in communities. Through classroom curricula and a wide range of activities, we teach young people how to care for, preserve and protect our environment. We work with businesses, schools, neighborhood groups and state/local governments to improve our neighborhoods, and to preserve our world's resources for future generations.

Keep America Beautiful's Great American Cleanup -- the nation's largest annual community improvement program -- features more than 30,000 cleanup, green-up and fix-up events in more than 16,000 communities, led by our participating Great American Cleanup organizations. Over 3 million volunteers/attendees work together to make neighborhoods cleaner, safer and more beautiful … where our National Sponsors' customers and employees live, work, play and shop.

The Great American Cleanup focuses on Keep America Beautiful's participating organizations and National Sponsors as national and local "change agents." Made possible by our National Sponsors, participating organizations and volunteers effect and sustain improvements to local community environments.

Great American Cleanup activities target areas of greatest need in each community, including: litter and debris clean-ups; building restoration; school and community playground renovation and construction; community improvement and beautification; park clean-up and renewal; roadway clean-up and beautification; river, lake and seashore cleanups; youth environmental activities; reduce, reuse, recycle and litter-free sports/music events.


Sponsors Participate Because Our Program is Good for Local Communities and Good for Business

We build national and local awareness of our Sponsors' involvement in specific community improvement projects and promote the tangible results with credit to our Sponsors.

  • Gaining significant national and local media attention
  • Increasing awareness/public recognition of Keep America Beautiful, our participating state and local organizations, and our Sponsors
