GREENWOOD, Ind., June 13, 2022–Indiana American Water today announced that it donated more than $295,000 last year to organizations in the communities it serves across the state through general charitable contributions and programming support.

“In addition to providing safe, clean and reliable water and wastewater services to our customers, we are also committed to giving back to our partner communities,” said Indiana American Water President Matt Prine. “Our employees and their families live, work and engage in the communities we serve to make them better places. It is a core part of our values and who we are as a company.
“Whether it’s through supporting local charities and social service organizations, awarding environmental grants, or involvement in various community, economic development, and service organizations, we are active participants in every community we serve,” Prine continued. “Last year alone, our employees volunteered 1,065 hours in the communities we serve and nearly 150 times for local community events.”
Each year, Indiana American Water provides hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants to its communities through its Environmental Grant Program, firefighter grants, support for economic development organizations, and other charitable contributions and community partnerships.
