Who We Are

Diverse partners working towards a common agenda

The Lancaster Clean Water Partners is a countywide, collaborative partnership of diverse partner organizations – local leaders in business, municipal public service, higher education, conservation planning, and non-profit management – that come together with a Common Agenda. We’re led by an Executive Committee and a Board of Trustees, with full-time support from staff, and collaboration with many partner organizations across Lancaster.

Since the inception of the Partners in 2018, it has operated as a program of the
Foundation. Due to the growth while advancing the Common Agenda and shared vision
of “Clean and Clear Water by 2040,” the Foundation and the Partners collectively
decided the creation of a subsidiary LLC of the Foundation is a key strategic advantage
to the success of the collaborative clean water initiative.

The Partners thrive because of the immense dedication and collaboration from our partner organizations, and they are at the center of our shared mission:

Rapidly accelerate and expand the ability of the partner organizations to restore and sustain healthy Lancaster County waterways.
