American Water Donates $40,000 to Aquatic Sciences Program

American Water, the largest publicly traded U.S. water and wastewater utility company, and its charitable foundation announced a $40,000 donation to the Center for Aquatic Sciences in support of its Community and Urban Science Enrichment (CAUSE) summer camp program.

Camden, N.J.-based American Water and its American Water Charitable Foundation described the contribution as an expansion of its partnership with the Center for Aquatic Sciences.

“All of us share a commitment to environmental stewardship and a passion for educating children about water quality and water conservation,” said Carrie Williams, president of the charitable foundation. “As neighbors on the Camden Waterfront, we also share a commitment to providing opportunities and building education programs for the students of Camden today and for generations to come.”

CAUSE, which focuses on intense academics and mentoring for a manageable number of youths is the flagship program of the Center for Aquatic Sciences and has been serving youth since 1993. Since its inception, 100% of students have graduated high school. It has reached more than 300 teens as interns, and more than 3,000 children as campers.
