Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1. Education– The key to encourage positive behaviors toward community improvement.\n\n2. Individual Responsibility– Improving communities, their environment and quality of life begins with personal responsibility.\n\n3. Public-Private Partnerships– Broad-based community alliances are essential to achieve sustainable community improvement.\n\n4. Volunteer Action– By engaging volunteers, we extend the reach of our educational efforts and multiply the impact of our actions

Keep Ohio Beautiful follows, trains, and is a leader in the state utilizing the Keep America Beautiful’s behavior-based research the became the foundation for the Clean Community System program (CCS), which is known today as the KAB System. \n\nThe KAB System is one of the many tools used by KAB affiliates to positively change the attitudes, behaviors and practices of individuals regarding litter. The KAB System also empowers individuals to go beyond litter in addressing physical and visual aspects of their community environments.

Change Behaviors, Not Just Cleanups\n\nEngage Community \n\nDevelop or Enhance Community Ownership\n\nAccountability and Documentation\n\nA Clean, Green & Beautiful Place to Live

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
