Help Fund a Water Project

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

Tab and I are on a mission to make a difference in the world while raising a family inspired to love others, take bold steps, and trust God to do big things. At the ages of 18 months and 2 months, Finn and Luke are both gamers!


The Water Project gives us an opportunity to practically care for people, which we believe is a vital part of sharing Christ's love with them. We are very excited to raise funds for a specific project that we will be able to connect to through photographs, updates and diligent feedback provided by The Water Project.


We would love to have you join us in making a difference! As a focal point for the fundraiser, on October 7th, I will be running the Towpath Marathon in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park - 26 miles of running bliss! If you would like to join Team Water Project, please consider a donation per mile ($1 per mile = $26, $2 per mile = $52, etc.), or make a donation in any amount you choose. Any donation, no matter the amount, will be greatly appreciated and make you a part of our team!


After the race, our team's funds will be assigned to a specific project related to delivering clean water to people in need. We will personally update every member of the team on the progress of the project, giving you an insight into how your donation is affecting peoples lives. We are excited to see the change we can make in the world by joining together to love people in a very practical way!


With love and much gratitude,

Keith, Tab, Finn and Luke

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.
