From building bioswales and rain gardens at our annual conference to educating elementary school students about the value of water, WEF members care deeply about giving back to the water environment and improving public health. Explore this page to learn about the ways in which WEF Members work to create a healthy global water environment and how you can volunteer your time and expertise.
Charities of Choice
The Water Environment Federation is pleased to recognize several nonprofit organizations that focus on philanthropic work domestically and/or in developing countries. These organizations provide services that help ensure the water environment is enhanced or preserved and that public health is protected.
These Charities of Choice strive to make conditions better “on the ground” and in communities and provide opportunities for water professionals to volunteer their assistance. An organization’s services may be remote and/or may include sending volunteers to provide in-person assistance to improve the water environment. WEF encourages its 30,000 members to volunteer their time and expertise to these organizations or contribute in other ways.
