to empower Oklahoma citizens to preserve and enhance the state's natural beauty and ensure a healthy, sustainable environment.


Keep Oklahoma Beautiful (KOB) is a statewide nonprofit organization founded in 1965. KOB has undergone a number of incarnations throughout the years, changing with the times, while always working to achieve its mission.

Today's KOB operates on a modest budget funded by contributions, grants and performance contracts with corporate partners and state agencies. KOB's voluntary board of directors guides a program which targets grassroots efforts of Oklahomans involved with community and environmental improvement.

The culmination of each year’s work is the annual, statewide awards competition...leading to the annual awards recognition banquet. Well attended and greatly anticipated, the early winter event recognizes the best of the environmental best in Oklahoma.

As a state affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, KOB organizes the annual Great American Cleanup™ in Oklahoma and provides materials and tools for communities and volunteers. Startup cash grants are available for qualifying KOB network organizations.
