Common Questions about Donating Online

What kind of work does my donation help fund?

Your donation helps us build sustainable solutions to water shortage and provide convenient access to clean, safe water for people in rural Uganda.

 

If I’ve given to support a specific project, what happens to my donation if the fundraising goal has been met, or if the project is discontinued?

If a donor chooses to restrict a gift for use in a particular program or project, we will honour that restriction. However, if the need for such a program or project has been met or cannot be completed for any reason as determined by the organization, we will use the remaining restricted contributions where they are most needed.

How do I give?
