Keep Indianapolis Beautiful

Helping people and nature thrive.™

We create for the future.

Keep Indianapolis Beautiful (KIB) is an environmental and community nonprofit that works with neighbors and volunteers to create vibrant public spaces, helping people and nature thrive. We plant trees and native landscapes, build greenspaces, pick up litter, and engage learners of all ages to make Indy cleaner, greener and safer for everyone.

We roll up our sleeves.

Each year, KIB supports over 800 community projects through the hard work of our staff and nearly 20,000 volunteers. We’ve partnered for almost half a century with our neighbors and Indy’s community groups, government agencies, and businesses in pursuit of a beautiful city for all of us. We roll up our sleeves to make our city look good – for today and for generations to come. Looking for volunteer opportunities in Indianapolis? KIB has got you covered.

We are people-powered.

From tree plantings and habitat restorations to block-by-block cleanups, we can’t Keep Indianapolis Beautiful without your help. We rely on volunteers (and donors) like you who believe in a greener and cleaner future for all of us.

We are here for you.

We aim to give our community knowledge, skills, and tools to care for people and nature. Our resources, programs and actionable tips are designed to help you create a cleaner, greener city for you and your neighbors.


KIB is proud to receive a Platinum rating from Guidestar and a 4-Star rating from Charity Navigator for our fiscal responsibility and transparency.
