Keep America Beautiful® Community & Recovery Tree Planting Grants [Keep America Beautiful Affiliates-Only]
In 2019, The UPS Foundation is proud to offer the 2019 Keep America Beautiful® Community & Recovery Tree Planting Grants.
Community Tree Planting Projects will address one or more of the following: reducing levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) and greenhouse gas emissions through strategic plantings; emphasizing the importance of native trees; or planting fruit trees to produce fruit for local consumption.
Post-Recovery Tree Planting Projects will be given to affiliates whose communities have lost significant trees as a result of a natural disaster. These grants will focus on planting trees that have a greater likelihood of withstanding disasters ( e.g., roots hold soil and prevent erosion, lessen runoff to mitigate flooding).
- Projects will demonstrate long term operational and financial sustainability
- Priority will be given to affiliates that encourage and have an articulated plan for UPS employee engagement in tree planting projects
Deadline: July 2, 2019
