You can do anything to raise money for clean water.

From lemonade stands to themed parties to ukulele pop-up concerts and everything in between, we’ve seen fundraisers do some pretty remarkable things for clean water. No matter what you do, 100% of the money you raise will directly fund clean water projects that will transform the future for families around the world.

Why fundraise?

No one should die from dirty water. And yet, 3,800 lives will be lost today. And tomorrow. And the day after that. Many will be children. But it doesn’t need to be this way. The water crisis is a problem we know how to solve. And we will, if we work together.

As a fundraiser, you'll inspire your community to join you in your mission to bring clean and safe water to as many people as possible. Along with increasing awareness and empowering those around you to take action, 100% of every penny you raise will provide families with the water, sanitation, and hygiene resources they deserve.

how it works

Starting a fundraiser is easy

Set up your fundraiser

It only takes a few minutes to get started. Choose a name. Pick a photo. Share what you’re doing, and why. And just like that, you’re ready to start raising money for clean water.

Spread the word

Once your campaign is set up, tell everyone you know. Your grandpa. Your great Aunt Sally. Your friends from way back when. The more people you tell, the faster you’ll reach your goal.

See your impact

100% of the money you raise will directly fund clean water projects. We’ll report back to you — and everyone who supported you! — about where your money went and the communities you’ve helped.

What will you do for clean water?

You name it, the charity: water community has probably done it. Fundraisers have proven there’s no mountain too high, no haircut too wild, no canvas too big — all in support of clean and safe water. 

Now, it’s your turn. What will you do?

Make your next birthday one to remember

Lory learned that millions of people spend hours walking to collect water each day, all for water that’s not safe to drink. So instead of asking for birthday presents, he asked his friends and family to donate $6 for his 6th birthday — and raised $2,386. 

Inspired by Lory? (We are, too.) Consider donating your birthday for clean water.

You deserve to give with confidence

All of our operational expenses are funded by a private community of donors, so you can trust 100% of your donation will go directly to water solutions, every cent, every time. 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. These companies and organizations agree.
