Welcome to the Foundation for Pennsylvania Watersheds (FPW)!

The Foundation for Pennsylvania Watersheds, formerly known as the Western Pennsylvania Watershed Program, is a grant-making foundation that invests in efforts to protect healthy, natural streams around the state — and also to clean up pollution and repair damaged wildlife habitat. You can learn more about our projects, their geographic distribution, and the funds they’ve leveraged by visiting our Grant Transparency site.

Our mission is to foster stewardship for the protection, preservation and restoration of Pennsylvania’s unique water resources and watersheds, while leveraging local, state and federal agency funds. Our primary service area extends from the Ohio border to the mainstem of the Susquehanna River. We achieve success through partnering with federal, state, and local governments as well as partnering with YOU–our grantees. Our work would not be possible without the support of our fiscal managers, the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies.
