Water - Clean Water Fund

Clean Water Fund

Our Priorities

  • From Watershed to Water Tap - policies and practice that put drinking water first.
  • Preventing Waste and Pollution at the source; Tackling the tsunami of plastic waste that is trashing our water.
  • Clean Energy and Climate Solutions that create jobs and protect water.
  • Clean Water Defense - keeping clean water laws and other protections strong and effective.


Clean Water Fund's mission is to develop strong grassroots environmental leadership and to bring together diverse constituencies to work cooperatively for changes that improve their lives, focused on health, consumer, environmental and community problems.

Based in Washington, DC, Clean Water Fund operates locally staffed environmental and health protection programs serving communities in more than 15 states.

Clean Water Fund's programs build on and complement those of Clean Water Action, a one million member national organization which has helped develop, pass, strengthen and defend the nation's major water and toxics laws such as the Clean Water Act, Safe Drinking Water Act, Superfund and others, including their state-level counterparts.

Clean Water Fund is a non-profit organization under section 501(c)3 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. Contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Our History

Since 1974, Clean Water Fund has helped people campaign successfully for cleaner and safer water, cleaner air, and protection from toxic pollution in our homes, neighborhoods and workplaces. Organizations and coalitions formed and assisted by Clean Water Fund have worked together to improve environmental conditions, prevent or clean up health-threatening pollution in hundreds of communities and to strengthen policies locally and nationally.
