Causes We Support


Join the CA-NV Section in its mission to lead, educate and serve the drinking water community, by helping us support the following causes:

theBridge
The Section’s Philanthropy program debuted a new logo to identify this charitable aspect of the organization. theBridge has layers of meaning for an association largely concerned with water management and engineering. Many bridges span water bodies, for example. Symbolically however, a bridge is a safe and stable crossing; a structure that offers support to get to a desired destination. The philanthropy of the CA-NV Section of AWWA is meant to offer another kind of support, also aiding people to get to a desired future. Students and people living in less wealthy countries are among those theBridge currently supports. When you see the term and image you can be sure it’s part of our charitable mission.
