Keep Carter County Beautiful is a Tennessee Nonprofit Corporation and a 501c3 Public Charity
Keep Carter County Beautiful (KCCB) is proud to announce it has become a Tennessee Nonprofit Corporation and has attained the status of a Federal Public Charity. It is a tax-exempt non-profit organization under IRC Section 501(c)(3) within Tennessee. Among other things this designation makes all private donations to KCCB tax deductible.
Our mission is to make Carter County a beautiful place to live and work focusing on beautification, reduction of litter, promoting recycling, and environmental awareness through public education.
What started out in 2016, as an all-volunteer grass root organization called Carter County Proud evolved into a new organization called Keep Carter County Beautiful (KCCB), in 2018. The founder of KCCB, Ed Jordan, had a vision to make Carter County a beautiful place to live and work. KCCB coordinates numerous volunteer projects to enhance the environment in public open spaces. The group provides projects for litter pick up, beautification through tree and flower planting, and recycling awareness and education. KCCB also promotes public awareness through educational engagements within the county school system and local business and government.
KCCB is an all-volunteer organization with all funding going directly back into our community. Our success would not have been possible without our valued volunteers, dedicated donors, and the many professionals who help us. Without the support and funding from our community leaders, business partners and local government we could not be successful.
In 2021, Keep Carter County Beautiful launched this website. We hope the website offers insight into our history, communicates our events, provides educational resources, celebrates our community, offers promotional merchandise, and offers a forum for engagement through a blog. The public is encouraged to learn about us and provide feedback.
We are helping our Community leaders develop a creative, comprehensive plan for getting our county free of trash, litter and debris. We want to inspire and engage the citizens and community leaders to contribute to a cleaner, greener, safer and healthier Carter County. Lets make Carter County the example for the entire state.
