ENDOWMENT: 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 our mission: end littering, improve recycling, and beautify communities. 

LOCAL FOCUS: Keep Dalton-Whitfield Beautiful is run by a volunteer board of directors who live and work in the City of Dalton and Whitfield County. 

LASTING SUPPORT: Gifts to the endowment provide support year after year ensuring that the mission to create a vibrant community continues. 

ABOUT US: 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.

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