We hope to see you at the Awards Celebration on February 4th at the Mexican American Cultural Center, so save the date!Year after year, we are amazed by the many environmental projects taking place across Austin. We want to celebrate the amazing environmental leaders completing these projects by honoring them with a Keep Austin Beautiful Award. 
We are ramping up all our efforts in a targeted geographic zone for the whole year. Imagine what we can accomplish if we come together to complete large-scale service projects, plant trees, sow native seeds, organize cleanups, adopt miles of streets and creeks, and engage students all in one community...
Giving doesn’t get any more unique than this… First Connect, an Austin based auto insurance provider with a mission to give back to the local communities they serve, will donate 10% of their premiums to Keep Austin Beautiful on behalf of each customer who takes out a policy and is claim free for the policy year. Never before has an insurance company set aside such a large portion of their profits for philanthropic pursuits.

So if you are shopping for new insurance this holiday season or any time of year, we encourage you to get a quote from First Connect. If it meets your needs, we invite you to take out a policy and designate Keep Austin Beautiful as your nonprofit of choice...
