WHO WE ARE

Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Inc. is a nonprofit organization with a mission to engage diverse communities to create vibrant public places, helping people and nature thrive. Annually, KIB works with thousands of volunteers on hundreds of community projects across Marion County.

WHAT WE DO

We’re the ones who smile when planting trees in the rain, laugh with friends as we pick trash off our neighborhood streets, and who care very deeply about the health, happiness, and greenness of our city. We see a beautiful place to call home—one that is loved and cared for by the community and ecologically rich with plants, trees, and pollinators.

Below you can find our staff (sorted by department) and board, but we are only a fraction of the people that make our work happen.
