American Water has long believed in the importance of being a good neighbor and good steward of the environment.  The primary focus of the American Water Charitable Foundation is to support employees in their own charitable endeavors, provide stronger support for disaster relief efforts, and to provide funding for higher-level initiatives related to clean water, conservation, education, and community sustainability.  Since 2012, the Foundation has invested more than $7.2 million in funding through grants and matching gifts that are important to our employees and our communities.

Through its Employee Volunteer and Matching Gift Program, Employee Crisis Fund, Disaster Relief Program, Keep Communities Flowing Grant Program, and our Signature Program, Building Better Communities, the Foundation is making a difference every day in diverse communities throughout the country.
