Water Campaigns

You can conduct your own fundraising campaign to help bring clean, safe water to the people of rural Africa. It takes just $5,000 to sponsor a full water project. Water to Thrive encourages full project sponsorship to ensure uninterrupted funding for a community’s new water source. Full project sponsors receive photos and information about the location of the project and the number of people served, as well as the naming rights to the sign at your water point.

As always, we make our 100 Percent Promise,
that every dollar donated to a water project will go to fund that water project.
We have also created our Drop by Drop Fund,
for donations to help sustain our mission and support its financial foundation,

We also run special fundraising campaigns throughout the year to provide additional support for our mission.
From Amplify Austin and World Water Day in March to Giving Tuesday in November,
with additional campaigns like our Climb for a Cause and ongoing Change4Change campaigns,
supporters have many opportunities to help sustain the work we do.

Launch a campaign

There are so many communities in need
 in rural east Africa, and Water to Thrive works 
with local non-governmental organizations 
to help pinpoint our areas of service. As you work to raise money to build a well, we can provide you with resources to help spread the word about the importance of your water campaign.

Completed campaigns

Since the first dozen wells in 2008, Water to Thrive supporters have funded more than 1,000 wells changing the lives of over half a million people in Ethiopia, Uganda, Tanzania, and even Sierra Leone. As water projects are completed and celebrated by their communities, we share the joy and bring 
heartfelt thanks back to the sponsors.
