Kentucky American Water Proudly Recognizes American Water Charitable Foundation 2022 Water and Environment Grantee

Bluegrass Greensource Awarded $100,000

The American Water Charitable Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization established by American Water, the largest publicly traded U.S. water and wastewater utility company, recently announced that Bluegrass Greensource has been awarded a 2022 Water and Environment Grant.

“We congratulate Bluegrass Greensource on being named a 2022 Water and Environment recipient,” said Kathryn Nash, president of Kentucky American Water. “Our company has partnered with Bluegrass Greensource on a variety of environmental events and programs since its inception more than 20 years ago, and this grant will further assist their efforts to educate and engage communities.”

“Kentucky American Water is a leader in the community, and we are honored to continue our work with them and the American Water Charitable Foundation on this project,” said Amy Sohner, executive director of Bluegrass Greensource. “Connecting communities and water is core to Bluegrass Greensource’s values, and this project will not only help students and adults throughout the region understand this connection, it will also draw attention to our local waterways and encourage outdoor recreation. We are very grateful for their continued support!”

The Water and Environment grant is part of the American Water Charitable Foundation’s Keep Communities Flowing Grant Program, focusing on three pillars of giving: Water, People and Communities.

The $100,000 grant will support a comprehensive watershed education program engaging teachers and students through classroom and experiential learning activities. The effort will also connect with communities and organizations through river festivals that showcase the many ways citizens can make a difference in protecting and preserving waterways.

“The American Water Charitable Foundation is pleased to partner with organizations in Kentucky to provide equitable and accessible projects and programs focused on clean water, environmental education, access to water-based recreation and more,” said Carrie Williams, president, American Water Charitable Foundation. “Funding for the Water and the Environment grant will create high-impact projects that engage communities in learning how every drop counts.”
