America the Beautiful Fund

Description

America the Beautiful Fund is a national non-profit organization started in 1965 to encourage volunteer citizen efforts and to protect the natural and historic beauty of America. Over 50,000 projects in all 50 states have been developed and assisted with America the Beautiful Fund's help. The America the Beautiful Fund was born of a desire to preserve the national heritage by assisting community-level programs and projects to save the natural and historic environment and improve the quality of life. The America the Beautiful Fund now provides support and direction to volunteer community projects in all 50 states operating as a clearinghouse of ideas for thousands of community projects and as a catalyst for new ones. Started in 1965 as a national non-profit organization, America the Beautiful Fund has developed more than 50,000 citizen initiated volunteer projects. These programs were supported through America the Beautiful Fund's Operation Green Plant, Rediscover America, and American Landscapes programs. In 2000, in partnership with the White House Millennium Council, America the Beautiful Fund donated $1,000,000 worth of flower and vegetable seeds and spring flower bulbs to volunteers to plant over 2,000 Millennium Gardens and time capsules in all 50 states as a part of the White House Millennium Green Initiative.
