Thanks for visiting the charity: water page. We want to share 2 important changes.

  1. From 1st January 2019, we will no longer offer entire Water Project Sponsorships through Virgin Money Giving. Instead, you can donate an entire project here or you can wait for our new fundraising platform to launch in just a couple of months. Sign up for our emails here and we'll tell you as soon as we're ready. We're sorry about the delay- it will be here soon and it will mean we can tell you and people who sponsor you much more about your actual impact and where 100% of your donations actually go.
  2. We love people who give to us monthly, thank you! To become part of our monthly giving community and receive subscriber-only content, please join The Spring. Sign-up using the link above and please remember to cancel your Virgin Money Giving monthly donation to avoid giving twice. Thank you.

785 million people in the world live without access to clean water.

That’s nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide or ten times the population of the UK. The majority live in isolated rural areas and spend hours every day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep children out of school or take up time that parents could be using to earn money, but the water often carries diseases that can make everyone sick.

Our 100% Model

When you donate or fundraise for charity: water, every penny funds clean water projects. We’ve recruited a dedicated group of private investors that cover everything from staff salaries and office supplies to rent and flights to the field so that 100% of your money can be dedicated solely to water projects.

We Prove Every Project

We prove every completed water project with GPS coordinates, photos, and information about the impact they've had on the lives of children, families and whole communities so our supporters can see exactly how their support makes a difference.

Local Partners

We work with local experts and community members to find the best sustainable water solution in each place we work. And with every water point we fund, our partners coordinate sanitation and hygiene training and establish local water committees to help keep water flowing.


Ten years ago, Scott Harrison set out to solve the water crisis in his lifetime. Today, more than one million people have made it their mission too. This is all of our storyCelebrating 10 Years of charity: water
