KTMB is a tremendous organization that not only helps keep our community clean and beautiful, but helps educate and engage youth to protect our open spaces and special places for future generations. I am proud to donate and volunteer for this fantastic non-profit, that does so much, with very few staff and limited financial resources.

Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful has been essential to enhancing the quality of life in our community. The staff are enthusiastic and energetic and truly engage the community and promote volunteerism throughout our region. KTMB's efforts have made significant impacts to community beautifcation, through community clean ups and preventative educational efforts. I am proud to be part of such a fun group that does so much for our community!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

my interaction with the amazing staff and volunteers that truly care about the community.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

enthusiastic, energetic and positive!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

be unstoppable! KTMB could reach more people, beautify and educate even more of the community and make a significant impact on the quality of life for generations to come. Staff could focus on programming and not fundraising-that would be truly amazing!

With over 2000 non profit organizations in our community to choose from, it can be difficult to decide which one(s) to support. For me and my family, we chose KTMB to contribute financially, to volunteer our time and to encourage others to support as well and will continue to do so for many reasons. 1) It's a cause that we all benefit from; 2) It's an organization that is run lean and healthy; 3) the staff and the board of directors are clear in their mission and their role in our community; 4) KTMB is sincere in their appreciation for the volunteer time and other contributions they receive; 5) their events and their message are consistent, which makes it simple to share with others.

I'm so impressed with KTMB's ability to use every available opportunity to educate our community about recycling opportunities and volunteer events to reduce, and recycle waste appropriately in our region!

KTMB has long been the leading driver of reduce, reuse, recycle in Northern Nevada. In recent years it has also expanded to addressing the growing issue of illegal dumping, organizing illegal dump clean-ups and lobbying for better laws regarding the practice. And the best thing - KTMB and its staff make keeping our community beautiful fun! Yes, they make picking up garbage one of the best ways to spend a weekend!

Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful is a tireless champion for maintaining our quality of life in the Truckee Meadows. Their events span the arena from community cleanups to Christmas tree recycling to invasive weed removal. If it were not for KTMB, our open spaces would be filled with trash. KTMB raises public awareness and pride in our special area. Way to go!

KTMB really makes a significant impact in the Truckee Meadows. Their accomplishments are especially amazing when you consider that they have ten programs and only 3 staff!

One of the best organized non-profits that I have had the pleasure of being associated with. Events are very well organized and never a shortage of volunteers. The impact of KTMB is noticed with every park visit, a stroll along the river, or a drive in the open space. I am proud to be a member of a group that is so focused on making our community even better.
