Program Description:

charity: water uses 100% of public donations to directly fund sustainable water solutions in areas of greatest need. These solutions include hand-dug wells, drilled wells, rehabilitations, spring protections, rainwater catchments and BioSand filters.

Program Long-Term Success:

charity: water chooses exemplary partners in the field to build and implement water projects. Our partners have years of experience. They know the land, the people, the culture and the most appropriate water technology for each area of work. They report data from the field and provide proof of our projects with photos and GPS coordinates. They also engage communities in the projects; they help select Water Committee members, assist to manage dues for water use (if necessary) and provide comprehensive sanitation training.

Program Short-Term Success:

100% of donations go straight to water project costs. We choose exemplary partners on the ground to build the projects and provide sanitation training to communities. They report back to us with GPS coordinates and photos of each completed water project, along with data and personal interviews with locals to track progress.

Program Success Examples:

What is success? Organizations use plenty of different metrics to figure that out. Since the beginning of charity: water, we’ve focused on helping one person at a time. Part of how we gauge our success is by the number of people we serve with clean and safe drinking water.

Evidence of Impact

There are no summaries available for this organization.

Extremely effective at fundraising and bringing attention of WASH issues to the general public. Charity:Water also partners with high quality local and international NGO's as implementers. Nonprofit Senior Staff
This organization has been able to, better than any other, raise awareness and draw attention to the issue of hygiene and sanitation and its broad reaching consequences for people all over the world. This organization mobilizes huge resources and seeks out the most highly qualified NGOs and partners to work with. They hold their partners accountable and produce results that make donors want to continue to invest in projects because they see results. This kind of attention to detail often falls prey to resource shortage, but not so for charity: water. They have made it a priority to do good work, the right way, and to prove to donors that they can support international development without the hassle of red tape, corruption, and waste. Their 100% model where all of donor money goes to projects is helping to rebuild the American public's faith in international development one water project at a time. Nonprofit Senior Staff
In almost five years, charity: water has raised $40 million and funded 4,282 water projects. Foundation Professional

Organizational Strengths

There are no summaries available for this organization.

Transparency, 100% of donations go directly to programs. Nonprofit Senior Staff
This organization has an incredible marketing division that is able to create innovative and eye-catching videos, photos, and graphics that are attractive to the average person, not just the development world. Their exciting campaigns draw in those who might not otherwise be interested in donating and their follow-up retains those donors for lifetimes full of giving. In addition, their willingness to look beyond the simple water project to the importance of capacity building and other essential aspects of long-term, sustainable development make them a trendsetter and an integral part of the aid landscape in the world today. Without them millions of people would still be drinking dirty water and millions of Americans would still be ignorant to the cause of clean water, hygiene, and sanitation. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Strong leadership, creative marketing, and 100% of the donations getting to the field make a powerful machine, and big impact. Foundation Professional

Areas for Improvement

There are no summaries available for this organization.

This organization could work to improve their reporting formats from partners and work to better collaborate with organizations in the field. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Finding strong partners to meet your high standards is always going to be a challenge in the developing world. But charity : water is a rock star at doing just that. Foundation Professional
