COMMUNITY GIVING

As a company, we believe that by working together, we can build a better world. West Virginia American Water contributes more than $200,000 each year to community events, activities and organizations that benefit the growth, sustainability and protection of our service area. We look for opportunities to give back, especially in these areas of community investment focus:

  • 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.

For more information, we invite you to review our community giving guidelines and fill out our grant application form. Please be advised that our community giving is focused toward organizations that are located within or benefit customers in our service areas. Additional questions and proposals for community giving requests can be directed to:
