About the Campaign

Often the question asked in conversation or following a presentation regarding our work in Africa is, “How is it possible for my ‘Widow’s Mite’ donation, to help fund a well?”

There are several ways a “small coin” donation may be used:
1) Be part of a group campaign or a campaign on the Water To Thrive website set up by someone else.
2) Start your own campaign and invite others to join.
3) Or donate here to the “Widows Mite Well” which has been newly launched to honor all widows.

The basics of this campaign are: 1) Contributions are matched dollar for dollar by matching funds left by a widow for this purpose. 2) The administrative expenses are covered by the initial donor. 3) The matching funds will continue to be available for future wells, beyond this initial campaign. Please direct any questions to team@watertothrive.org. This campaign is sponsored by W2T Board Member, Ed Scharlau and his wife Rennie. Thank you!
