Crypto Fixes This

Donate to the next water project being entirely "Built By Crypto", so students like these can get back to class, healthy and ready to succeed.

The students at Fuvale Primary School in Western Kenya needed your help. There are 475 students and 20 staff members and every day they face the reality that without a very long walk to the river, there won't be enough water to meet their needs. And sadly, the river water may well make them sick.

With your crypto donations in early 2024, we're fixing that today. And we'll post a full report when the work is complete so you can see the impact you and others are making with your crypto gains!

And we're no where near done.

Will you help reach the next communities and schools in need? We can't do this without you.

We began accepting crypto in 2014.

Recognizing early philanthropic interest from both crypto investors and builders, The Water Project Founder, Peter Chasse, reached out to the emerging crypto community with a brief note that became the genesis of a number of important conversations."Welcome Cryptos" was an early invitation and stake in the ground regarding the potential for a new kind of generosity.

In 2017, The Water Project was the lead recipient of The Pineapple Fund, working with them directly to help validate their efforts to donate over $54M to various non-profits. The Water Project helped numerous other charities evaluate the risk and reward of accepting crypto and pushed sometimes reluctant CEOs to recognize the opportunity this was fast becoming.

Peter also recognized the utility of cryptocurrencies for The Water Project and is still leading in this area, working actively to fully integrate crypto into our infrastructure.

A large crypto gift will unlock our ability to move much more quickly into communities and schools we have already identified and prioritized for clean water projects.

Early investment by the crypto community allowed The Water Project to invest in the teams and research needed to build out a bold plan to saturate entire regions in the countries we work. The only piece left is adequate continued investment toward ending the water crisis for families in these regions.

Large gifts can also be invested in our Water Promise Endowment that enables us to fund maintenance and monitoring - both the people and the infrastructure - so that all the communities we serve have clean, safe water flowing every day.

Gifts of $1M+ USD equivalent will help quickly scale the impact and reach of The Water Project in critically needed areas.

There is no better gift than a flexible gift. Choosing "Do What's Best" is a way to indicate that you intend for your gift to be put to the best possible use, even over time.

This allows The Water Project to hold your gift in the cryptocurrency you donated, as a stablecoin, or in some cases fiat. And that you understand we may both invest and/or deploy your gifts at the right time for the best market return and for those in need.

We work with a team of advisors whose role it is to ensure the right balance between investment returns, long-term, and near-term water program needs. Sometimes, there is an immediate pressing need for funds (e.g. an opportunity to secure materials in bulk at some discount). Other times, a need may be further on the horizon (replacement of a drill rig, etc). The ability to hold and plan for events like this is enormously helpful in reducing risk while enabling us to quickly scale impact. All the while, investment returns fund water point sustainability.

Because large and often anonymous cryptocurrency donations are hard to anticipate, the more flexibility you allow, the better we can manage your investment with us. We're always seeking the greatest possible return for the people we serve - those in need of clean, safe and most importantly reliable access to water.
