Other Ways to Help Keep America Beautiful

  • Give While You Shop: AmazonSmile is operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. When you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to Keep America Beautiful. Support us every time you shop by adding the Smilematic extension to your browser to automatically be smile.amazon.com every time you shop Amazon.
  • Monthly & Workplace Giving: Make an even bigger impact by joining our monthly giving or your employee gift-matching program at your workplace. A matching gift is part of a company’s philanthropic initiatives that reward charitable donations.  It occurs when an employee donates to a non-profit organization and the employer will also donate to that organization, most often dollar for dollar. Many companies will also let you set up automatic, tax-deductible donations from your paycheck. It’s a no-fuss way to donate, and it gives our teams the reliable support to keep America clean, green and beautiful for the next generation. Ask your company’s human resources department how you can support our work through payroll deductions.
  • Donate Your Vehicles: The Keep America Beautiful Vehicle Donation Program, through CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services), provides an alternate opportunity for you to donate to Keep America Beautiful. It offers a tax-deductible way to dispose of unwanted vehicles (running or not) including cars, trucks, trailers, boats, RVs, motorcycles, campers, off-road vehicles, planes, heavy equipment, farm machinery, and most other motorized vehicles. Vehicle donation pick-up is always free to you and most vehicles can be picked up within 24-72 hours. Click here to learn more and donate.
