Help bring clean and safe water to every person on the planet.

The water crisis is massive. But together, we can solve it. Private donors cover our operating costs so whether you choose to join us by giving once or through The Spring, our community of monthly givers, know that 100% of your generosity will bring clean water to families around the world.

Our Work

771 million people lack basic access to clean and safe drinking water. We’re on a mission to change that.

We believe that sustainable work is locally-led. Along with implementing community-owned water projects, our local partners help facilitate comprehensive water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) programming to protect everyone’s long-term health.

About us

100% of your donation funds clean water.

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.
