Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Dell Match Play and Chef’s Table Austin will not be happening in 2020. The cancellation of these two events amounts to a loss of about $140,000 of operational funds for this year. This dramatic decrease in operational funding was not in our budget and we have no extra funds to make up for this loss. We need emergency operational funds to keep our small staff working and sustain our 100 Percent Promise that all donations for water go entirely toward water projects.
Today, we are launching our Operations Emergency Relief Fund campaign in effort to recover some of our loss. Now more than ever, our staff needs to be working, so we can provide clean water and life-saving training to the most vulnerable communities in the COVID-19 pandemic. Our Board of Directors took action and created a generous matching fund of $55,000. No matter what you can afford to give, your donation will be matched $.50 on the dollar to increase your impact. Any gift helps!
