Financials

The Water1st community makes all the difference. From country partners and project communities to generous individuals, family foundations, and corporate partners—together, we continue to have a big impact. Since 2005, we have raised $27 million to fund 3,703 projects, transforming the lives of over 250,534 people. Our consistently low administrative overhead of 13% allows us to direct 87% of donations to water projects. 

Water1st was created to build smart, comprehensive projects that last. You can be confident your donations have been invested in projects that are still in use today. Thank you for believing in this mission and making it your own.

As you read our 2020 Annual Report, we hope you take pride in what we have accomplished together. Thank you for supporting a solution that gives marginalized communities the same level of service that we enjoy—a kitchen tap, toilet, and shower right at the home.

Piped water to the household is the only solution that disrupts the cycle of extreme poverty. Water at every home allows communities to receive full health benefits + eliminates women’s time spent carrying water—time that can be redirected to activities such as education, employment, childcare, hygiene and even a bit of leisure.

Our model of employing and working collaboratively with local partners has served us well over the past twelve months. Our in-country colleagues worked tirelessly (and safely) to continue to protect our project communities with access to safe water and toilets. The trusting relationships our partners have forged in our project regions made them the most effective disseminators of Covid-19 messaging and resources—the strength of our local partnerships has never been more vital.
