2017 School Beautification Grant Application Form
Keep Dalton-Whitfield Beautiful’s committee for Beautification and Community Greening is pleased to announce the availability of School Beautification Grants in celebration of National Planting Day 2017. Schools in the Dalton/Whitfield area are invited to apply for funding that can help implement a project organized by the whole school, a single classroom, or an in-school organization. Beautification Grants may range from a minimum of $100 to a maximum of $250. National Planting Day is organized annually by Keep America Beautiful in the fall as an opportunity to encourage volunteers to plant native species restoring ecological balance to the environment while creating greener, more beautiful communities.
For questions regarding the form or any aspects of your proposed project call executive director Liz Swafford at 706-278-5001. Projects should take place in the fall and be completed no later than Friday, December 1, 2017. At the end grantees will submit a short project summary that will include volunteer hours, actual costs, list of other organizations involved, evaluation of project meeting the goal/purpose intended, and before and after photos. Certificates of participation for students are available upon request - a list of student names must be sent in with the summary.
