​Keep Dalton-Whitfield Beautiful Matching Grant Challenge Underway

Keep Dalton-Whitfield Beautiful board members have accepted a matching grant challenge for $50,000 to establish an endowment fund with the Community Foundation of Northwest Georgia. The group is already half way to meeting the goal of raising the funds, but requests your participation to make it all the way by the end of year.

Keep Dalton-Whitfield Beautiful is dedicated to creating a more vibrant community by focusing on programs and activities that end littering, improve recycling, or beautify communities. Christmas Tree and Electronics Recycling day, Adopt-a-Mile, #LiveLitterFree, and beautification grants for schools are just a few of the activities held this year.

Proceeds from the endowment fund will go towards events and educational campaigns, not staffing or office space, ensuring your donation will be used to fulfill the mission to create vibrant communities. Gifts to the endowment provide long term support to an organization led by volunteers who live and work locally.  

To contribute to the matching grant, make your check payable to: Keep Dalton-Whitfield Beautiful, and please mail to: Keep Dalton-Whitfield Beautiful – Endowment 2016, P.O. BOX 3392, Dalton, GA 30719-3392.

You can request that an endowment fund letter be mailed to you by calling 706-278-5001, or filling out the request form online at www.keepdaltonwhitfieldbeautiful.org.

Keep Dalton-Whitfield Beautiful began in 1989 as the Dalton-Whitfield Clean and Beautiful Commission. About two years later it became an official Keep America Beautiful affiliate. The organization is now an independent non-profit with the same mission - to engage local residents in creating a more vibrant community for everyone.

Keep Dalton-Whitfield Beautiful is an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful and the Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation. They're proud to join them in advancing education and collective action to ensure that beauty is our lasting legacy.
