America The Beautiful Fund
America the Beautiful Fund® is a national non-profit organization started in 1965 to encourage volunteer citizen efforts and to protect the natural and historic beauty of America.
Over 50,000 projects in all 50 states have been developed and assisted with America the Beautiful Fund®'s help. America the Beautiful Fund® is supported by donations and grants, including contributions from Federal workers and members of the Armed Service through the Combined Federal Campaign
The America the Beautiful Fund® was born of a desire to preserve our national heritage by assisting community-level programs and projects to save the natural and historic environment and improve the quality of life. The America the Beautiful Fund now provides support and direction to volunteer community projects in all 50 states operating as a clearinghouse of ideas for thousands of community projects and as a catalyst for new ones. America the Beautiful Fund® now draws on over a third of a century of experience, knowing what works and what does not work.
Started in 1965 as a national non-profit organization, America the Beautiful Fund® has developed more than 50,000 citizen initiated volunteer projects. These programs were supported through America the Beautiful Fund®'s Operation Green Plant, Rediscover America, and American Landscapes programs.
