703 million people are drinking dirty water. A lack of access to clean water forces families to journey away from home and makes it harder to earn an income. Dirty water keeps kids out of school and steals their education.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. You can help provide education, income, dignity, and health— especially for women and girls. A gift of just $20 a month is enough to bring 6 people— an entire family— clean water each year.
When you give to charity: water, 100% of your donation goes directly to funding water solutions in rural communities. We won’t stop until everyone, everywhere has access to clean water. But we need our monthly giving community, The Spring.
Our water projects are locally-led and community-owned. We deploy your donations to the field, where these partners go to work rehabilitating old water systems, building new ones, or completing sanitation and hygiene training.
The Spring is essential to this cycle. We count on monthly gifts to fill in any funding gaps that may arise or account for potential changes in project completion. The Spring enables us to fund our local partners with confidence and make the best long-term investments in rural communities.
A $40 monthly gift brings clean water to a new family every year.
The Spring is composed of generous, passionate, and determined people — like you — from more than 100 countries around the world. Our members have already transformed over a million lives with access to clean water, sanitation, and hygiene. Stand with us and change millions more. You’re going to fit right in.
“I used to have monthly subscriptions with several different companies. But then the makeup, tote bags, and international snacks started to accumulate. With The Spring, I can donate that money and see the impact my support makes around the world.”
“The Spring isn't just a subscription. It's a community of passionate investors. Being part of The Spring makes me hopeful that there will be more children who can dream bigger because they don't have to carry the weight of dirty water.”
“I'm currently an environmental engineer working on improving New York City's water and wastewater resources. Water is something that is very important to me, and access to clean water is something that we often take for granted.”
