The McWane Foundation was established to support the communities where McWane, Inc. has a presence through its plants and employees. The foundation welcomes proposals that meet the guidelines and policies outlined below.

Charitable Mission

Our waterworks products contribute to the infrastructure of towns and cities throughout the world by providing clean, safe water. Other products that we produce, such as fire hydrants and fire extinguishers, are used to keep our communities safe. McWane, Inc. is also interested in supporting the communities in which we operate and live by strengthening the “other” essential components of the infrastructure that contribute so significantly to the quality of life: education, healthcare, the environment and the arts. The McWane Foundation was established to facilitate that support.
