Biennial Gala

The New England Water Environment Association and NEWWA join forces every other year to help host a gala to raise money for Water For People. With your help, we’ve raised more than $215,000 for Water For People since our first gala in 2004. In that time, Water For People has grown to become a recognized leader of water and sanitation development. Come to celebrate what we’ve been able to accomplish and support the work that continues.

Save the date! The Water For People Gala will take place on Monday, May 5, 2018. Full details on the event will be posted as the date draws closer. 

NEWWA and Water For People

NEWWA supports Water For People, which is a not-for-profit organization that helps people in developing countries improve their quality of life by supporting the development of locally sustainable drinking water resources, sanitation facilities, and health and hygiene education programs.

NEWWA has a local Water For People Committee, whose main focus is fundraising for Water For People. They do this via a bi-annual gala, raffle at NEWWA's December Monthly Meeting each year, and a silent auction held each year at NEWWA's annual conference. These efforts have resulted in more than a hundred thousand dollars going to Water For People over the years, helping ensure proper sanitation for thousands in developing countries.
