Charity: Water

Charity: Water Featured on StartUpLift

Mission: Clean & safe drinking water to people in developing nations.

charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. It currently works with more than 20 implementing water partners in 16 countries to assess and determine areas and communities of greatest need. These 16 countries have been chosen because they have very limited access to a safe water supply, have high rates of water-related death and have exemplary local partners working to implement sustainable projects that tip the scale. Globally, the greatest water needs are in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, so most of the projects are located in those regions.

charity: water sends 100% of your funds to the partners in the field. The funds are restricted to the direct costs associated to the water projects and are enforced with formalized and detailed grant agreements.

    I really think this is just great and I don’t see how anyone could look at it in a negative light. The website itself is nice too.

    Great charity organization. Water is a precious resource and a site like this definitely helps to bring about awareness and by the look of it unlike for other charities 100% of the donation goes towards direct project costs.
