All of our 30 in Thirty Winners for 2018!

To honor our commitment to the Commonwealth, we announced our “30 Grants in Thirty Days” recipients for 2018 each day in the month of June. This year, we awarded 30 grants in the amounts of $500 to $1,000. These grants were given to schools, parks, counties and towns, environmental groups, associations, and Keep America Beautiful affiliates in four different categories:   Litter Prevention, Recycling, Cigarette Litter Prevention, and Community Beautification. Since 2011, we have provided $203,000 for 260 different projects throughout the state. We appreciate the generosity of our 2018 partners at Altria and Keep America Beautiful.

The mission at Keep Virginia Beautiful is to engage and unite Virginians to improve our natural and scenic environment through five impact areas: Litter Prevention, Waste Reduction, Recycling, Beautification, and Environmental Education.

Please see each of the winners below with links to their project description.
