Safe drinking water is much more than a basic human need. It’s the foundation for improved health, education, and economic opportunity. Where clean water flows, communities flourish.
Yet access to clean water is still out of reach for nearly 1 in 10 people on the planet. The good news: 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.
703 million people in the world live without clean water. The majority live in isolated rural areas and spend hours every day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep children out of school or take up time that parents could be using to earn money, but the water often carries diseases that can make everyone sick.
We're on a mission to change that. When you donate to charity: water, you’re investing in the hopes and dreams of families around the world. Families are healthier. Children are able to attend school full-time. Women can start a business or simply rest. Fathers have enough water for their crops and livestock. Communities thrive. That’s the power of your generosity.
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.”
