Established in 1999

We Tennesseans spend a lot of time extolling the virtues of our state and the quality of life we enjoy here, and former Governor Don and Martha Sundquist wanted to help ensure that we always have those same bragging rights. The goal of the Tennessee Beautification Fund, which they established, is to create a mechanism to encourage and enhance protection of our environment. Projects may include the planting of wildflowers, the collection of litter, the beautification of town squares, the involvement of civic clubs and school children, and the planting of trees to shade future generations.
