PA Watershed Summit 2010


Foundation for Pennsylvania Watersheds

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 to clean up pollution and repair damaged wildlife habitat. To date, we have assisted more than 150 different groups, funded more than $5 million in projects, leveraged more than $80 million in additional investments and restored nearly 600 miles of polluted streams and rivers. 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.

Bayer Center for Nonprofit Management

The Bayer Center for Nonprofit Management at Robert Morris University
offers consulting services and non-credit classes in areas such as board governance, business and strategic planning, collaborations and mergers, database development and enhancement, website development, financial management, fund development, human resources, legal issues, custom “hands-on” technology training, and technology planning. We also conduct research and provide information and referral to a broad range of resources. Since our establishment in 1999, the Bayer Center has strived to provide the guidance, tools and information necessary for nonprofit organizations to effectively fulfill their missions.

Department of Environmental Protection

The Department of Environmental Protection is largely responsible for administering Pennsylvania’s environmental laws and regulations. Each day, the department works to reduce air pollution; make sure our drinking water is safe; protect the water quality in our rivers and streams; make sure that waste is handled properly; support community renewal and revitalization; promote advanced energy technology and help the commonwealth’s citizens prevent pollution and comply with Pennsylvania’s environmental regulations.
