American Water Donations to Water For People Charity Surpass $2 Million

Water (NYSE: AWK), the nation’s largest publicly traded water and
wastewater utility company, announced today the company and its
employees have raised more than $2 million in the last decade for Water
For People, an international nonprofit organization dedicated to
providing access to improved water and sanitation systems and services
in developing countries.

This year’s successful month-long campaign raised almost $200,000 to
support Water For People’s life-changing work. In addition to financial
donations, American Water employees volunteered to raise money in
several creative ways, including competitive sports games, silent
auctions, cookouts and bake sales, all which enable Water For People to
get closer to its goal to provide access to clean water for everyone

American Water will also sponsor Jamie Gough, a chemist at the company’s
Belleville Lab in Illinois, to participate in a one-week Water For
People Impact Tour to Peru in September. Water For People Impact Tours
give participants the extraordinary opportunity to travel to communities
for a first-hand look at sustainable water and sanitation projects in
progress and the vast difference the systems are making in people’s

“I cannot understate Water For People’s tremendous work throughout much
of the developing world in securing quality water and health resources
for those who strongly and urgently need it,” said Deb Degillio, senior
vice president of American Water’s Eastern Division and executive
sponsor of the company’s Water For People employee giving campaign.
“Water For People’s mission echoes American Water’s commitment to
building a world where all people have access to safe drinking water and
sanitation. Our employees’ enthusiasm, generosity and contribution to
help raise funds for this campaign, truly demonstrates our commitment to
provide access to clean water for everyone forever.”

“The continuing generosity of American Water and its employees enables
us to further our mission of Everyone Forever,” said Eleanor Allen, CEO
of Water For People. “American Water’s employee giving campaign is one
of the longest and largest for Water For People, and the support has
helped us reach Everyone through reliable, long-term water systems in
communities such as Sagar Island, India, and San Pedro, Bolivia. Thank
