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 $1.9 million has been distributed to nearly 20,000 people in Montgomery and Prince George’s counties to help them pay their water/sewer bills. In fiscal year 2021, the Water Fund provided life’s most precious resource to 3,774 of our neighbors through the distribution of almost $514,000. 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.
