From now until June 12, Arcadis, a natural and built asset design and consultancy firm, will match all monetary donations up to $25,000. This investment will help Water For People, an international nonprofit organization dedicated to providing access to improved water and sanitation systems and services in developing countries, provide four million people with access to safe water and sanitation in nine countries.

 

“Water For People and Arcadis both exist to improve quality of life – including securing the fundamental human right of continuous access to safer water and sanitation for everyone,” said Michael MacPhee, president at Arcadis, North America, in a news release. “The types of work we do may differ, but our desire for lasting impact is the same. Giving to Water For People moves the world forward, which feeds our passion and our purpose.”

 

“We are grateful for partners like Arcadis who help us double our impact and bring us that much closer to reaching Everyone Forever,” said Sue Dorsey, chief financial officer at Water For People. “Through this partnership we’ve been able to explore what it means to invest in sustainable solutions and the moments that matter.” 

 

The Spring Campaign will run in the lead up to this year’s American Water Works Association ACE Conference, which runs June 8-10 in Anaheim, Calif., and will end on June 15.
