Charity: Water is a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries. Founded by Scott Harrison, Charity: Water has single-handedly revolutionized the non-profit industry, with their policy of deploying 100% of donated funds (including merchant processing fees) into the field with complete, verifiable transparency.
To date, Charity: Water has completed 35,281 water projects in 27 countries, providing 10 million people with sustainable, clean water for the very first time in these communities.
Charity: Water is able to deploy 100% of donated funds into the field because their overhead and administration costs are covered by a small group of approximately 150 families known as “The Well”, who make substantial donations to the organization.
I had the honor of becoming a member of The Well in 2017, alongside Tony Hawk, Gary Vaynerchuk, Chris Sacca, and Simon Sinek.
