FINANCIALS

Together, we’ve raised over $16 million.

Since 2005, Water1st supporters have given over $16 million to fund 2,178 projects in five countries, transforming the lives of over 178,000 people.

In 2016, with your support, we raised $2,218,630. Our low overhead (87% program and 13% administration) allowed us to direct even more money to water projects. The consistent financial support of the Water1st community is the engine that powers our project success. This growing, collective support poised us to expand our work this year to a new country in tremendous need—Mozambique.

Water1st was created to build smart, comprehensive projects that would last. We have remained true to that vision. You can be confident your donations to Water1st have been invested in projects that are still in use today.

Thank you for believing in this mission and for making it your own.

Water1st hires an independent, certified accounting firm to audit our financial statements every year. In 2016, 87% of all our expenses went toward programs. While the general percentages are one way of evaluating a nonprofit, we also encourage supporters to look closely at what we accomplish. Our challenge is not just spending your donations efficiently, but also effectively. We closely monitor the work of our in-country partners, to make sure your investments continue to be lasting and sustainable. LEARN MORE.
