Programs Supported Since 1967, NC Beautiful has played an important role in environmental education for this state and in supporting organizations in their beautification efforts. NC Beautiful has implemented several statewide programs to provide real-world experience in protecting, preserving, and maintaining the quality of our natural resources and the environment. Through the generous support of corporations and individuals, we have:
- Awarded grants of empowerment to K-12 teachers to create hands-on environmental programs in their classrooms across North Carolina.
- Awarded close to 300,000 azalea plants to over 3,500 non-profit organizations statewide.
- Enhanced the natural beauty of hundreds of acres on the grounds of schools, churches, parks, greenways, public rights-of-way, and community and senior centers across the state.
- Awarded graduate and undergraduate scholarships to students in all corners of the state of North Carolina in order to raise environmental responsibility and awareness.
