What is a water foundation?
We are a non-profit organization focused on alleviating the global water crisis by bringing clean water access and water-health and hygiene education programs to the world’s most impoverished communities.
Our programs are focused on schools, children, and rural communities across the Asia-Pacific region and Latin America. Join us, and together we can abolish global water poverty one community at a time.
Our work and investments aim to ensure full and effective implementation of California's major groundwater sustainability law. We also explore opportunities to replicate it, to strengthen public and environmental health and sustain communities and agriculture.
We support collaborative efforts to protect and restore the ecological health of major river basins. We currently focus on the Sacramento-San Joaquin, the Lower Colorado, Lower Snake, and Upper Rio Grande river basins.
The lakes and rivers that flow through millions of acres of US forests are our nation’s single greatest source of drinking water, as well as vital habitats for fish and wildlife. We aim to maintain essential water supplies, enhance ecosystems, and reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfires.
Safe Drinking Water
Our work and investments prioritize long-term solutions that advance the human right to water, including ensuring water is clean and affordable, treating contaminated water, and stopping pollution from entering water supplies.
Our investments help public agencies and nonprofits advance equitable and resilient stormwater projects, as well as creating new green space and building community power in water governance. We have particular focus on the implementation of Los Angeles County’s Safe Clean Water Program.
Rural resilience underpins our investments in places like California’s Central Valley. We aim to build out work to help rural communities proactively avoid and respond to water-related shocks in ways in that minimize harm and spur renewal and equity.
