Giving Back Through Charitable Donations
As an involved member of the communities we serve and a steward of natural resources, we focus our philanthropic efforts on non-profit organizations related to water. Each year, we donate approximately $1.5 million in direct contributions and in-kind services to hundreds of local environmental organizations and groups across the country, helping protect natural resources in every community.
No one is immune to unexpected financial hardship. Situations like the loss of a job or a debilitating illness or injury can make it difficult for individuals to meet basic, day-to-day living expenses. When such crises occur, SUEZ North America steps in to help.
SUEZ Cares is our non-profit program that helps customers who need temporary financial assistance to maintain their water service.
For more information, please call your local SUEZ customer service center, or call SUEZ toll-free at 888-942-8080.

Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation
The mission of the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation is to help build character and teach critical life lessons to disadvantaged young people residing in America’s most distressed communities through baseball and softball-themed programs. The “Badges to Baseball” program—which brings together police officers and kids to play and build positive relationships—is sponsored by the SUEZ Foundation in Springfield, MA; Jersey City, NJ; Poughkeepsie, NY; and Harrisburg, PA. These programs will impact over 800 youths in these communities each year.
