How Donations are Used

For more than 60 years, Keep America Beautiful has been inspiring and educating people to take action every day to improve and beautify their community environment. We envision a country where every community is a clean, green, and beautiful place to live.

To be responsible community stewards, we must be responsible financial stewards for our donors and the people and places we serve. Our actions show a tangible and meaningful financial return for communities nationwide. On average, Keep America Beautiful affiliates provide $34 in measurable community benefits for every $1 invested by local governments. Through the Great American Cleanup, our signature community improvement program, we deliver an annual average of more than $175 million in measurable benefits to the communities we serve throughout the country.

The impact of our actions is reflected in our Annual Reviews and financial reports, demonstrating how we strive to deliver the greatest value from the resources — human, financial and in-kind — we have at hand. 

Keep America Beautiful consistently receives high ratings from independent charity evaluators, such as Guidestar and Charity Navigator, which is an indication you can feel confident that your donation will make a difference in the lives of those we touch through our many programs.
