Help Fund a Water Project

Together, we can unlock potential in a developing community by providing clean, safe water.

Clean water doesn't just save lives, it changes them... forever.

 See the results of our working together for clean water!


Survival Kits for the challenge were given out at Manchester Christian Church this past Sunday, 1/27, and boy are we going for it! Are you loving the Family Journal and collecting the funds from the beverages you decided to skip today in favor of tap water? We are excited to share some updates on the Fortress Water Challenge with you here:



  • Over 300 families decided to take on the challenge and picked up bags at one of our campuses this past weekend.

  • Over 480 Water Project bracelets were given out at Wellington Rd Campus, alone.

  • Over 25 people participating in the challenge have said they will serve at the Finale Event on 2/10 to celebrate our commitment to clean water!

  • It's not too late to jump in on the challenge: get your Survival Kit at MCC (all campuses) during the week and this Sunday, and read up on how we can all support clean water globally by making different choices.

  • Thanks for participating in Snowball Effect: Fortress Water Challenge!
  • Don't forget to come to the Final CELEBRATION EVENT on Sunday, February 10th from 5-7 @MCC Wellington Rd Campus!


  • At our CELEBRATION EVENT, you and your whole family will have the opportunity to learn
    more about the global water crisis and how you can continue to help as you
    learn why clean water is so important. We will have snacks, refreshments,
    games, a Relay, a BOUNCE HOUSE, and all sorts of fun and surprises in store! And
    you won’t want to miss a brief presentation by a very special speaker who will talk
    to us about The Water Project and how our 2-Week Challenge will forever change
    lives across the world!

  • All are welcome to attend!

    Please remember to either bring your banks
    to one of our 2/10 services (drop off at the Fortress Kiosk (WRC) or Welcome
    Kiosk (BRC and DTC) or bring it to the Celebration Event that evening! We will
    have counters ready so that we can announce our final contribution to The Water

    Why It Matters

    Access to clean, safe water unlocks potential

    Did you know nearly 1 billion people don't have safe water to drink?

    Together, we can change that. Let's fund a new source of drinking water for those who suffer needlessly without it!

    Our gifts will be used to construct or rehabilitate a water project, like a well or sand dam, in Africa. We'll see pictures, GPS coordinates, and updates as they come in from the actual water project we fund so we can celebrate the results along with the community we help.

    About The Water Project

    The Water Project, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization unlocking human potential by providing clean, safe water to communities around the world who suffer needlessly without.

    Working with local partners in countries like Kenya, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, and Uganda, we build long lasting water projects that are organized, owned and managed by the communities receiving them.

    Together, with our partners we identify, implement, report on and follow up on every project. Then we share the whole story with you to inspire confidence in the work being done and the impact it has.
