No matter how old you are, where you live, or what you can give, you can help end the water crisis—and you can start right now.
The first promise we made is a promise we still keep today: 100% of all public donations bring clean water to people in need.
Transparency is one of our core values, so along with using every penny you donate to fund clean water projects, we also prove each project with photos and GPS coordinates.
