Give Water

Born out of the American Water Works Association (AWWA), the largest nonprofit, scientific and educational association dedicated to managing and treating water, Water For People was established in 1991.

In the early 1980s, Ken Miller, with CH2M and a former president of AWWA; Wayne Weiss, with Black & Veatch; and John B. Mannion, a former executive director of AWW​A, shared the vision of a world where all people have access to safe water and adequate sanitation. The three joined forces to support Water For People’s creation and future as a leader in social responsibility and innovation in the sector.

We continue to have a very strong partnership with AWWA, the Water Environment Federation, the Water Quality Association, the National Association of Water Companies, the National Association of Clean Water Agencies, and the Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies.
