The Water Fund was established in 1994 by WSSC Water employees to help residential customers in financial need pay their water/sewer bills. Since then, nearly $1.6 million has been distributed to more than 17,344 people in Montgomery and Prince George’s counties to help them pay their water/sewer bills. In fiscal year 2020, the Water Fund provided life’s most precious resource to 2,847 of our neighbors through the distribution of nearly $350,000. The Water Fund donations come from generous customers, community members and employee donors.
WSSC Water pays the administrative and promotional fees while The Salvation Army assists clients and manages the fund, so that 100 percent of all donations go directly to those in need. Customers can make multiple requests for assistance with water and sewer bills, up to $500 per year. Please make a tax-deductible donation today to the WSSC Water Fund. Your tax-deductible donation ensures that your neighbors will continue to have access to clean, safe and reliable water. 100% of all donations go directly to those in need.

Water Fund Event Proposal
As part of WSSC Water’s efforts to raise additional money and awareness for the Water Fund, local restaurants within our service area will be solicited by the Tommy + Kelly Show (Real.Fun.DC) to participate in a pilot program. The objective of this pilot program is to work with four diverse restaurants. In Prince George’s County, the two participating restaurants will be Henry’s Soul Café in Oxon Hill and Franklins in Hyattsville. In Montgomery County, Cielo Rojo in Takoma Park and Founding Farmers in Rockville will participate. Event promotion begins on April 19. The promotion at the restaurants will run from May 2 - 9, 2021. This thoughtful community-driven campaign will tell the story of WSSC’s excellent history of clean water while raising awareness and donations for the Water Fund from diners in both Prince George’s and Montgomery counties.
