FINANCIALS

Together, we’ve raised over $14 million!

Since 2005, Water1st supporters have given over $14 million to fund 1,873 projects in four countries, benefiting 165,675 people.

Water1st is a grassroots organization of more than 7,000 supporters across the country. Together, we are impacting the lives of the world’s poorest people.

Water1st was created to build water projects that would last. We believe poor people are their own best resource in escaping poverty so we fund solutions based on their priorities. In a world that entices us with new technologies, it is easy to lose track of the human element. But we have remained true to our vision. We have completed 1,873 projects and not one has failed, proving that our respectful, comprehensive approach works.
