Launch your own fundraising campaign
to help bring clean, safe water to the people of rural Africa.
You can build your own fundraising campaign to help bring clean, safe water to the people of rural Africa.
Just as it takes a village to raise a child, sometimes it takes a community to bring water to a village. To sponsor a full water project, your campaign needs to raise $5,000. You have our 100 Percent Promise that 100 percent of the money raised for any well campaign will go directly into that water project. Water to Thrive encourages full project sponsorship, which allows us to move more quickly to construct a well for people in need. After your well is fully funded, you will receive photos of the well, GPS coordinates for the location of the well and the number of people served, as well as the naming rights for the sign at your water point. We encourage you to set a 6 month goal to reach your well funding, but if you need more time this is no problem.
Here are some things to think about as you follow the prompts on our well project fundraising form:
Think of a title for your campaign.
You will create a campaign welcome message to introduce your campaign with personalized wording and share why water is important to you. Some suggestions are to share your city and state, and information about yourself or your church, business, family or organization. Feel free to be creative, and you can check out existing campaigns on our website for ideas! Your text will appear at the top of your personal fundraising page.
As you submit your campaign preferences, keep in mind that to fully fund one well, your goal needs to be at least $5,000. Water to Thrive makes the 100 Percent Promise that every dollar donated for clean water goes entirely to water projects.
In addition to your well funding goal, you have the opportunity to include an additional fundraising goal of your choosing for The Drop by Drop Fund, to support the indirect expenses of building a well.
And lastly – think of a photo you’d like to use to represent your fundraiser. Please email your picture or image to include on your page, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your file should be in .jpg, .gif, or .png format. Recommended image size is 300 x 300 pixels. Or, if you prefer, we can choose one of our photos from our travels.
Thank you for supporting our mission!
