charity: water is a nonprofit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries. With a radically transparent model that sends 100% of public donations straight to the field, charity: water funds sustainable water projects in areas of greatest need and works with local partners to implement them. The organization proves every project, using innovative technology and powerful storytelling to connect donors with their impact. Since 2006, charity: water has funded more than 28,000 water projects around the world to help 8.2 million people get access to clean water, hygiene and improved sanitation.
One Girl was started in 2009 after two Australians met Brenda – a girl begging on the streets for donations to go to school. One Girl works with young girls in Sierra Leone and Uganda to provide educations and scholarships to enable them to be the best they can be. As of January 2017 they have supported the education of over 17,000 women and girls, and engaged over 40,000 people in our awareness and fundraising campaigns.
1% For the Planet
One Percent for the Planet is a network of businesses that contribute at least 1% of their annual total sales to environmental and conservation nonprofits. Yvon Chouinard and Craig Matthews founded the organization in 2002, believing that it’s good business to protect the natural resources that keep you in business.
Ten years later, their spark has ignited a global collaboration, and participating companies have given more than $100 million to environmental and conservation efforts.
