Mission Statement

We empower the poorest rural communities in East Africa to provide their children clean water and healthy homes to develop to their potential. We are unique in not just building wells, but creating local savings and credit cooperatives that finance well maintenance and repairs to ensure sustainable water and provide a source of capital for households to invest in a brighter future. We are a lean, data-driven organization with a staff that is >95% Ugandan.

Since 2008, The Water Trust has helped more than 300,000 people gain and sustain access to water, sanitation, and hygiene. We continue to monitor more than 900 partner water points, testing water point functionality and water quality to ensure water is still flowing.

In a setting where just 55% of borehole wells are functional and just 30% have functional management, our partner communities achieve >93% functionality in both water functionality and management functionality. The secret is the community cooperative banks we form, which manage a reserve fund for well repairs. Households are happy to pay into the water point reserve fund because they also benefit from access to personal savings and credit, allowing them to invest in their children and their livelihoods.

Why Donate Bitcoin to The Water Trust?

You can bring clean water to people in need, and create new financial institutions that will keep water flowing for decades while helping poor households invest in their future.

The Water Trust is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with reports on our impact and cost-effectiveness available on our website at watertrust.org.

Save on your Taxes by Donating Crypto

Why Donate Crypto Directly? Taxes!

There’s a reason high net worth individuals tend to donate property instead of cash. Donating cryptocurrency directly to a 501c3 nonprofit is more tax efficient and can save you money.

The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes which means it is typically the most tax efficient way to support your favorite cause. When donating crypto, you receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the crypto, and you avoid the capital gains tax you would have incurred if you had sold the crypto and then made a donation. That means you’re able to donate more, as well as deduct more on your tax return. The difference? Sometimes more than 30%.

If you provide an email, you will automatically receive a tax receipt after donating.
