Community Giving

We focus our community investments in four key areas:

Water and the Environment:
Innovative, community-based environmental projects that improve, restore or protect our watersheds and our communities’ surface and groundwater.

Water and Healthy Living:
Efforts that contribute to healthy communities by promoting access to safe water and sanitation, educating customers on the health benefits of water and encouraging good hygiene practices.

Environmental Education:
Educational programs which provide information about water conservation, water and wastewater treatment, the water cycle, watershed protection and the environment.

Community Sustainability:
Projects that meet a definitive, sustainable community need, preferably aligned with American Water’s core business, and which enrich the lives of the residents who live and work in the communities we serve.

We recognize the serious challenges of climate change, including the growing need to conserve and protect our water resources. We believe in investing in innovative programs that align with our core business of water and wastewater service, and are committed to working with community partners to develop sustainable solutions to local environmental issues.
