Community Philanthropy

See how we give back.

For over 200 years, The York Water Company has supported the York Community. Today, our community extends far beyond York. We’re giving back to our communities in Adams, Franklin, and Lancaster Counties, too.

We are a company that cares.

We support nonprofit organizations in our communities. We sponsor, volunteer, and serve as leaders in numerous organizations.

Our employees regularly volunteer, organize events, and serve on non-profit boards, and we encourage it! It’s part of the culture here at York Water to share our time talent.

Community Education

Field Trips and Classroom Visits

We love field trips and classroom visits. We have hosted educational groups for tours of our various water and wastewater treatment plants to learn how drinking water gets to their tap, and what happens to the water once it goes down the drain.

From Pre-K to Adult Community Organizations

We visit preschool to college classrooms, and we don’t stop there. We meet with community organizations to teach our friends and neighbors about our water and wastewater systems, the stock market (our symbol is YORW), and how to pursue a job in water or wastewater.

Check out our latest field trips and class visits on our blog In Our Community.
