Washington Area Fuel Fund

In 1983, Washington Gas established the Washington Area Fuel Fund (WAFF) in conjunction with The Salvation Army. Since WAFF's inception, Washington Gas has paid all of the administrative costs and The Salvation Army administers the fund. Because Washington Gas pays all of the administrative expenses, 100% of all contributions go directly to people in need. Over its 30-year history, WAFF has assisted more than 261,000 people and has distributed nearly $23 million.


Employee Community Service Program 

Washington Gas’ Community Service Teams are made up of employee volunteers. Each year, these teams manage a number of projects that benefit residents of the entire region.


Charitable Grants

We make substantial contributions each year to environmental, educational and health programs. More information about our corporate giving program guidelines and sample list of supported organizations is available.
