Though charity: water sets out to help people rather than the environment itself, they are giving new life to one of the planet’s natural resources. Unsafe water (and lack of basic sanitation) kills more people every year than all forms of violence combined, including war. This charity aims to significantly reduce disease in the developing world by making one of life’s most basic needs — clean water — more accessible. The organization chooses locations in need around the world to build water and sanitation services, considerably reducing the amount of time and effort spent collecting water (that wasn’t even safe in the first place). The best part about this charity? 100 percent of public donations go to funding projects. (In other words, your donation goes right to where it’s needed — not to help cover charity: water’s operating costs.)
100% of your money brings clean water to people in need.
When you give to charity: water, 100% goes to the cause. That’s right, 100%. A small group of private donors pay our operating costs, so when you give, every penny goes to the field.
On top of that, we prove every project we build using photos and GPS coordinates. You can give knowing your whole gift will help bring clean water to people in need.
