How We Give Back

San Jose Water is proud of the commitment to the community that we demonstrate each day— on and off the job. We encourage our employees to give back through the following programs:

SJW Employees' Community Fund, Inc.

The SJW Employees' Community Fund, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization run by and for the employees of San Jose Water. Employee contributions are distributed to other non-profit organizations in which our employees are involved. Giving guidelines for the SJW Employee Community Fund, Inc. program are available on its website.

Matching Gifts to Local Universities

To further encourage philanthropy among employees, SJW matches gifts made to the major universities in our area, San Jose State University and Santa Clara University. SJW matches employees' gifts on a dollar-for-dollar basis. Requests for a matching gift must originate with SJW employee.
