The Water Project




Mission Statement

Clean hands need soap AND water. We're working in Africa right now, ensuring vulnerable communities can stay healthy in this crisis.

The Water Project, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization unlocking human potential by providing reliable water projects to communities in sub-Saharan Africa who suffer needlessly from a lack of access to clean water and proper sanitation. For ten years, we have been helping communities gain access to clean, safe water by providing training, expertise and financial support for water project construction through our staff and implementing partners.

The Giving Block only equips registered charities to accept crypto donations. Because crypto is classified as property by the IRS (and many other tax agencies globally), in addition to a write off, you do not have to pay capital gains tax on donated crypto. Consult a tax professional to confirm specifics. Or contact us to be put in touch with one.

To receive a tax receipt, you must enter your email at the end of the widget. Your email can be de-identified, and you do not need to disclose any personal information on the second page of the widget. Unless you want to stay in touch!

Why donate Bitcoin?

Hand-washing is crucial to the fight against virus and disease - and it's what we do! The good news is, for years, as we installed and repaired water points across Africa, we also taught hundreds of schools and communities how to build hand-washing stations, how to keep their water source and homes free of germs, and how to begin other good health practices. It’s what we do every day and it is saving lives. But we need to do more and we need to ensure water keeps flowing throughout the crisis.

Now, more than ever, we urgently need your help to stay on the front lines of this fight, today and into the coming months. While we may not be able to avoid every work shutdown or quarantine along the way, we certainly CAN avoid a financial pause - with your help. When your giving continues, water keeps flowing for children and families who need it most.

For the last few weeks, leading up to the world-wide spread of COVID-19, we’ve been working with our teams at home in the U.S., and in Kenya, Uganda and Sierra Leone to ensure everyone is safe and cared for. We’ve taken specific steps to keep all of our staff and partners protected and we're all working remotely as needed, which is quite normal given our distributed team
