Throughout the year, Water to Thrive holds events to raise awareness of our mission and funds to support it, with proceeds going to help fund our budget and to allow us to maintain our 100 Percent Promise that every dollar donated for a water project will go to that water project. We started Chef’s Table Austin in 2012 and have seen it become our signature fundraising event. We hold smaller events throughout the year, from Shop for a Cause evenings with local businesses to holiday shops with our own merchandise from Ethiopian markets. We participate in larger events like Central Texas’ Amplify Austin and the worldwide observations of Giving Tuesday and World Water Day. And our supporters hold and participate in events as well, from the delight of lemonade stands to taking part in larger fundraisers on our behalf.
