Clean Water. The Foundation makes grants to U.S. nonprofit organizations for projects related to water conservation, sanitation, and safe drinking water. Most projects have a strong educational component.

Impact Grants (US$100 thousand over 3 years) are awarded to projects that apply or advance technology to address water (e.g. water, wastewater, stormwater) issues. Smaller Giving While Living grants range from US$500 to US$2,000 and are funded entirely by donations from Woodard & Curran, Inc. employees.
