Board and Committees

Keep Gastonia Beautiful is a unique organization, we are both a City recognized department with a working budget granted yearly from management and a non-profit. Our staff is paid through the City's general fund and we have a city budget to execute activities required for the department but we also have a non-profit account at a local bank where we have the ability to fundraise and do specific projects that would not have to be run through the City process. With our non-profit designation, we can apply for grants and other opportunities that we would not be able to by being affiliated with the local government.

As a board, we are more than a "clean up" organization, we're more INFLUENTIAL than that! It is up to us to change the attitudes of the community as to how we perceive our community, how we handle our solid waste, promote recycling, conserve natural resources, and encourage beautification along with building a partnership to help change attitudes and make everyone feel ownership to their community.  If you'd like to be considered to join the KGB Board of Directors reach out to Juliann Lehman at 704-869-1938
