Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Trees for Tucson

Trees for Tucson is Tucson's urban forestry advocate. The program provides low cost native and desert adapted trees to homeowners and businesses. We facilitate community tree planting, care, and education events for neighborhoods, parks, schools, and streets and train and compensate youth and young adults to be tree leaders. Neighborhood tree planting is focused on communities that are heat vulnerable and have low tree equity scores.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Ethnic and racial groups
At-risk youth
Children and youth
Economically disadvantaged people

Land Stewardship, including Adopt-a-Park & Public areas provides opportunity for friends, neighbors, businesses, civic organizations, and school groups to to improve Tucson's environment and quality of life by volunteering to provide stewardship of a public area such as a park, street, wash, path, or traffic circle. In addition to ongoing and one time clean ups, TCB works on eradicating invasive species such as buffelgrass, and on restoring Tucson's precious waterways.

Population(s) Served

Tucson Clean & Beautiful educates the public about reducing waste, especially single use plastic, to save money and resources and benefit the environment. TCB coordinates recycling education efforts and operates an online recycling directory. We provide community groups and school aged children with an interactive learning experience.

Population(s) Served

Since 1989 TCB has administered several park sites designed to honor, thank and remember friends and loved ones, through collaborations with Pima County, the City of Tucson, and many other agencies and organizations. You can plant a commemorative trees as a lasting honor and legacy for friends and family members, or have a deceased child’s name engraved

Population(s) Served
Adults

Workforce development programs provide youth and young adults from frontline communities with personal and professional development around arboriculture, green stormwater infrastructure, Sonoran desert ecology and connection to the environment. Training includes personal wellness, leadership skills, tools and safety, plant ID, soils, rainwater harvesting, proper pruning and planting, resume development and interview techniques, along with personal assistance to develop each individual's educational and career pathway based on their interests.

Population(s) Served

Young adults

Rain Activated Improvements In Neighborhoods, or RAINworks, is a green stormwater infrastructure mini-grant program developed by the City of Tucson Water Department and administered by Tucson Clean and Beautiful to provide neighbors and community groups in the City of Tucson the ability to install stormwater harvesting features in their neighborhoods. The overall objective of the program is to build climate-resilient communities through using neighborhood-based, participatory green infrastructure projects to increase public open space, improve public and environmental health and quality of life.

Charting impact

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

The organization strives to:
- increase tree canopy to meet the 24% goal for a desert city as identified by the Trust for Public Lands, reduce the urban heat island effect, reduce atmospheric CO2, reduce stormwater runoff and erosion, increase property values
- reduce litter and improve maintenance practices at every public site within metropolitan Tucson
- increase recycling and waste diversion rates, promote reuse opportunities, and decrease waste sent to area landfills
- enable the community to remember, thank and celebrate special people in their lives
- reduce recidivism and associated cost in the juvenile court system, to provide opportunities for continued professional and personal development, and provide the opportunity for continued success in the future

- hands-on volunteer engagement is key to all Tucson Clean & Beautiful programs
- enable community donors to directly impact environmental improvements in the local community
- build a local network that reinforces environmental improvement
- educate the community regarding environmental resources
- draw in a diverse set of program participants from all socioeconomic segments of the community
- provide the tools and resources needed for community-based projects to flourish
- create demonstrable and replicable projects that can be shared across the local community and beyond

Tucson Clean & Beautiful already has an established track record of partnering with local governments, businesses, community organizations, and individual volunteers and contributors which, combined, help to make these goals possible. The organization's passionate staff and program partners are highly engaged in making programs and projects happen, as well as maintaining a network of organizations with complementary interests to continue keeping the pulse of the community and adapting to emerging interests and needs in the community.

The organization has made tremendous strides over three decades in influencing local policy related to landscape standards, implementation of recycling programs, community cleanup projects, and more. There still remain more than 600 public sites (primarily streets and washes) available for volunteer cleanup on an ongoing basis, more trees and related effort in planting and maintenance are always needed to continue to expand and maintain tree canopy, and while recycling and waste diversion resources are widely available in the area, the organization must continue to respond to the continual new residents in the area as well as maintaining awareness among existing residents regarding a range of environmental and community improvement issues.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

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.
