We're on a mission to bring clean water to the 703 million people living without it. You can join us. No matter how much you give, every cent funds clean water projects around the world.
We work exclusively with local partners who build sustainable, community-owned water projects. Our partners also facilitate comprehensive water, sanitation, and hygiene programming to protect everyone’s long-term health.
All of our operational expenses are funded by a private community of donors called The Well so you can trust that 100% of your donation goes directly to water solutions. But we don’t stop there.
From our commitment to equipping local partners, to our tech, to the environmental sustainability of our water projects, “good enough” is never good enough for us. We’re setting new standards for transparency and innovation, and these companies and organizations agree.
Here's how you can take action today:
