Keep Indianapolis Beautiful


Mission Statement

Our mission is to engage diverse communities to create vibrant public places, helping people and nature thrive.


Keep Indianapolis Beautiful (KIB) is an environmental and community nonprofit with a mission to help people and nature thrive. We're an award-winning affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, Inc., a national organization dedicated to preserving the natural beauty and environment in American communities.
We believe in shared responsibility, and we know that sustainability starts with love. So we engage and empower citizens of all ages and backgrounds to take action. From tree planting to block-by-block cleanups, we roll up our sleeves to keep Indianapolis beautiful and make our city proud-both today and for generations.
We work with neighbors and volunteers to plant trees and native landscapes, create community spaces, pick up litter, and engage students of all ages in nature. Each year, KIB supports over 800 community projects with nearly 20,000 volunteers. For over 40 years, we've partnered with neighbors, the public sector, and Indianapolis community groups and businesses to achieve our vision of a beautiful city.
