As the KAB Foundation continues to reconstitute, build its board of directors and initiate fundraising efforts, the following letter was submitted to the editor of each of the state's newspapers:

Never before have environmental issues been of greater interest to Arkansans. Conservation, recycling, and clean water and air are top-of-mind issues that are changing the way we think about the environment. Across Arkansas, these issues are emerging in towns large and small.

Communities that are clean, green and sustainable will ultimately drive the state’s economic prosperity and societal well-being. Keep Arkansas Beautiful encourages all Arkansans to accept responsibility for maintaining our state’s scenic beauty and quality of life. These efforts positively influence civic pride, livability and economic growth – creating places where people want to live, work and visit. 

Keep Arkansas Beautiful works closely with schools, communities and volunteers to offer programs to enhance The Natural State. You may be familiar with the annual Great Arkansas Cleanup and the Litter-Free Zone clean-campus curriculum. Your support is needed so we can continue providing these programs in your area.

You can help us create and expand programs to keep your community  – and our entire state – clean and green. Visit for more information about how you can make a tax-deductible contribution to support a greener and cleaner Arkansas. 

Thank you for your energy, effort and enthusiasm in helping Arkansas communities to prevent litter, encourage recycle and enhance scenic beauty. Together, we can make Arkansas shine!
