Volunteer program

We see ourselves as members of the communities in which we operate.

Our commitment to act responsibly is made a reality with the time that our people donate through philanthropy.

In the three years since the American Water Charitable Foundation launched (2012), employees have volunteered more than 12,000 hours and donated thousands of dollars to charities they care about. In recognition, the Foundation has provided matching gifts of $360,000 to those same organizations.

Our annual AmerICANs in Action! employee month of community service event has seen a 30 percent increase in participants and project hours in each of the past three years. Over 1,700 employees across our state operations took part in 92 different community volunteer projects, totaling 4,739 hours. 

Every year we look for new opportunities to give back to the communities we serve, live and work within.
